WHGA Community Healthy Food Hub
In 2014 with the support of LISC NYC, WHGA redeveloped one of it's vacant storefront on Lenox Avenue now called the WHGA Community Healthy Food Hub to serve as a portal to improve access to healthy food and advance educational prospects related to health and nutrition.
Today the Hub offers a variety of healthy food resources for West Harlem residents including a “client choice” food pantry, cooking demonstrations, nutrition education workshops, an affordable farm share with Corbin Hill, assistance with food stamp enrollment, and information on how to find neighborhood resources for eating healthy on a budget.
This program is dedicated to engaging youth, families, and seniors from WHGA’s housing portfolio as well as those who live, work, and shop in the larger West Harlem community.
The Hub is located at 625 Lenox Avenue, off 142nd Street in Central Harlem. For more information please call us at at the Hub: 212-690-7900.
