Growing Healthy Foods

To encourage healthy eating for the SBH community, SBH has partnered with Project EATS, which runs urban farms throughout the New York metropolitan area.  Project EATS is a neighborhood-based project that uses art, urban agriculture, partnerships, and social enterprise to sustainably produce and equitably distribute essential resources within and between local communities; especially those where people live on working class and low-incomes.  Project EATS also works with SBH in our Farmacy Program, which includes a campus farm stand that provides patients and community residents with steep discounts.  This is particularly important in a community where the rates of obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease are among the highest in the country.
