Sunday March 13th at the 2016 Just Food Conference
New York City
The FoodBargeHack is a brainstorming and educational event sponsored by the Lower Hudson Long Island Resource Conservation & Development Council (LHLIRCD), bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders and passionate participants. We seek experts in transportation logistics, food distribution, agricultural product aggregation, food hubs, sustainable technologies and/or regional food systems.
Together, we will envision an energy efficient, sustainable regional food transportation system via our state’s waterways. We will focus on how to connect mid-sized upstate farmers with underserved NYC neighborhoods using a barge on the Hudson River, and challenge the status quo. With your help, we will achieve a viable alternative to food filled trucks on our roads.
Just Food is an incredible NYC based non-profit that supports community leaders to advocate for and increase access to healthy, locally-grown food, especially in underserved NYC neighborhoods. Every year, in addition to producing an expansive, educational and empowering food conference, Just Food connects a quarter million New Yorkers to fresh food in their neighborhood through its network of community food projects.
