¡Frutas deliciosas y frescas el mercado en Quito, Ecuador! Capturado por Catarina @healthywalnut en su viaje en noviembre. Queremos desarrollar más jardinería en nuestra comunidad para tener acceso a frutas y vegetales frescas y locales para todos nuestros vecinos. Es parte de la visión de la justicia alimentaria. // Delicious fresh fruit in a market in Quito, Ecuador! Captured by Catarina on her recent trip in November. One of our goals is to increase the amount of food gardening in our community so all of our neighbors can have access to fresh, local produce. It’s part of our food justice mission. ✊🏼

We loved playing human bingo at our annual holiday celebration! You had to find one person for each square. Sample items: was born out of the country, has been to the WHIN Food Council garden plot, has been to 3+ parks in the neighborhood, composts their food. We got to know each other and had some fun! // ¡Nos encantó jugar al bingo humano en nuestra celebración anual de vacaciones! Tenías que encontrar una persona por cada cuadrado. Ejemplos de artículos: nació fuera del país, ha estado en la parcela de jardín del Consejo Comida de WHIN, ha estado en más de 3 parques en el vecindario, ha compuesto su comida. ¡Nos conocimos y nos divertimos un poco!

Members of our steering committee attended the annual Just Food Conference this past Sunday with the theme of “Persist and Resist!” What a great opportunity to learn and share about #foodjustice with other passionate folks. We’re out here representing the WHIN Food Council in these conversations!

The WHIN Food Council seasonal eating potluck last Thursday was a hit! Thanks to everyone who came out & joined us. We ate well and learned a lot! We also built community between people of all different ages and backgrounds. Food is a great connector 🤗

Our next meeting will be on Thursday, April 26th from 7-8:30pm and the spotlight will be on food policy. Guest speaker Craig Willingham from the NYC Urban Food Policy Institute will be speaking to us on food procurement policies in New York City and how institutions get their food.

What is a "Mother" when we are talking about fermented foods like kim chi and (some) yogurt?

The Mother is a colony of special bacteria that turns a substance like alcohol into vinegar or the sugar from your veggies, plus water, into a delicious pickle-y liquid.

The Mother can survive indefinitely and continue to grow! Now that Davia has shared hers with each of us, we can each continue to use and grow our portion, which we can then share....etc. etc.

How exciting!!! #fermentation #community #communityworkshop #pickling #radish #ittakesavillage #mother #food #healthyfood #foodjustice #education #gardentotable #growyourfood #fermentyourfood #freeevent #whinfoodcouncil #foodsovereignty #sharingknowledge #fermentedfoods #foodstagram #justiciaalimentaria #washingtonheights #inwood #nyc #altomanhattan #uppermanhattan #northernmanhattan #wahi #whin #washhts
WHIN Food Council hosted our first ever food workshop making fermented radishes. Community member and master home cook, Davia Prego, shared her 50-year-old fermentation "mother" with us, while she told us of her father, who was the one who gave it to her.

On the grind. At the Community Board 12M Health & Environment Committee meeting tonight. Lots of interesting presentations. The committee tends to lean towards medical (including mental health and substance abuse) conversations in terms of health so I’m always interested in how to bring food into the conversation. •
