<p>WHEDco food policy & food tasting event – March 18th, 2013</p>
<p>WHEDco is the organization I worked with last year as a VISTA member. Their mission is to ensure Bronxites have the same opportunity for a healthy, happy life. They built energy efficient housing, a rooftop farm on one of those buildings, recruited and assisted Green Cart vendors, advocated for CSAs in the BX, and run a weekly food pantry. That’s just scratching the surface of what they do for and with the community.</p>
<p>They also have an incubator kitchen that supports food startups. Last night featured the companies from the kitchen. From Gourmet Butter to shrimp sauce, these enterprisers are getting their chance to shine in the NYC food world.
