A Healthy Food Hub in the Heart of HarlemShare
Marcus Samuelsson joins healthy food hub opening
Celebrity Chef Marcus Samuelsson conducts a cooking demo at the opening of the West Harlem Community Healthy Food Hub.
A strong partnership
The hub was made possible by a partnership between the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, West Harlem Group Assistance, Inc. and LISC.
Inside the Hub
Rick Luftglass, ED of the Illumination Fund, and Corby Kummer, acclaimed food writer for The Atlantic, study a map of WHGA's healthy food access work in Harlem.
Cooking demonstrations for everyday
Because not everyone has the time to be a professional chef, staff from the Corbin Hill Food Project demonstrated simple and tasty healthy recipes.
Food for thought
In addition to serving foods, the hub will offer a range of services including nutrition education workshops, cooking classes, grocery store tours and food stamp enrollment.
