Latest Projects
Launching in mid-June 2013 The South Bronx Mobile Market – a former school bus running on used veggie oil, will provide local, mostly organic produce to South Bronx Communities. This project will also be used as a springboard for workforce development, job creation and to support local urban and rural growers. The BLK ProjeK is forging relationships with Sustainable South Bronx, Corbin Hill Farm and Wholeshare to gauge and encourage partnerships that will make The South Bronx Mobile Market a grassroots, inclusive endeavor. The communities the mobile market will concentrate on initially will be Mott Haven, Hunts Point/Longwood and Grand Concourse/Highbridge.

We conducted our first pilot project December 2013 – March 2014 and served over 200 community members, conducted 10 cooking demos and facilitated several environmental and food justice workshops in collaboration with community organizations such as The Point CDC, Sustainable South Bronx and Laundromat Project.
