Food Co-op Community Survey Training Session

Join the Campaign to Build Power and Food Justice in Central Brooklyn 

Brooklyn Movement Center (BMC) is a membership-led, direct-action, community organizing body based in Central Brooklyn (Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights and the surrounding area). We bring together residents to identify important issues in their lives, win concrete improvements in their community, and build collective power.

One of BMC’s areas of work is food sovereignty. Specifically, 30 or so members of the community have come together to establish a food cooperative that will be owned and operated by the people of Central Brooklyn. By establishing a community-based, member-run food cooperative, we can make it convenient and affordable to buy good food, while strengthening ties between our neighbors.

This summer we are planning a major outreach effort to expand the membership base of the future food cooperative and gather important information about local food needs. We are calling on you and other Central Brooklyn residents, particularly people of color, to join this summer’s outreach campaign.

The first step is to attend one of the outreach trainings that we have planned through the week of July 7th. Then, help us lead the outreach and survey campaign which will begin during the week of July 14th .

Join us in our effort to build a healthy, sustainable, and equitable food system in our community!

If you have further questions, concerns, or thoughts before signing up for a survey training session, you can contact Harvir Kaur (Food Justice Organizer) at (718) 771-7000.
