Community Meal on Saturday August 18th at noon!

We are excited to partner with Brooklyn Jubilee to host another community meal at noon on Saturday, August 18th!

Join Flatbush neighbors for a FREE, delicious, healthy, vegetarian lunch, prepared by our local community chef David Cohen along with volunteers from Sustainable Flatbush and Brooklyn Jubilee.

Kitchen crew at work

We will continue the theme presented at our first community meal earlier this year — HEALTHY EATING ON A BUDGET — this time using summer foods.

Our tasty menu will include:

• Bean Stew with Jamaican Pumpkin and Coconut
• Brown Rice and Quinoa with Scallion and Ginger
• Summer Tomato and Basil Salad
• Summer Berry and Peach Bake

In addition, there will be a dietician on hand to help us learn how healthy eating can greatly improve our health and well-being. There will also be an opportunity to receive FREE advice from Brooklyn Jubilee staff and volunteers on food stamps, health insurance, and other legal issues.

Fresh herbs from our urban farm

While you’re here be sure to visit the Sustainable Flatbush urban farm/native plant garden and community compost station! As always, we’ll be composting all food scraps from the meal to reduce waste and create healthy soil for our gardening projects.

If you love to cook and would like to join us in preparing this meal, contact us or email community chef David Cohen.
