To celebrate our 8th season bringing sustainable, local, organic produce to Jackson Heights we are planning a picnic during distribution!

You bring your food and a blanket and we’ll supply the beverages and cups. Jonny Meyers will be playing music for us and Bittersweet NYC will be selling incredible baked goods to finish off your picnic!

Don’t forget, distribution is at St. Mark’s Church (33-50 82nd Street) from 5:30-8:15.

A few reminders:
Bags – If possible, bring reusable bags to bring home your share. Also, if you have extra grocery bags to add to our collection for people who forget to bring theirs, we love to re-use bags!!!

Grass – Important! We are allowed to use the lawn again this year. Hooray!! But only for foot traffic. Please keep wheels (including strollers + bikes), boxes, tables or chairs off the lawn so we can continue to use it…thanks!

Volunteer Hours – Sign up for your volunteer hours here!!

Dairy – If you ordered from Milk Not Jails, don’t forget to put up your order! 
Milk Not Jails is planning to have a table this week to answer questions and encourage last-minute sign-ups! Click here if you want to 
get a dairy share.

Fruit – The fruit shares will not start until later in the season when fruit is fully ripe and delicious. So “fruit only” people please come to the picnic, but your shares will not be in for several weeks. We’ll let you know when we hear that the farm is sending fruit to distribution.

Compost is Open!
Bring your veggie scraps! Here are compost tips.
