1 in 5 Brooklynites goes to bed hungry*.
Brooklyn Feeds seeks to address this injustice by bringing Brooklyn restaurants and non-profits that cater to the borough hungry together for a day of fundraising and awareness building.
To help this effort, House of Juice will donate a portion of our day’s sales, 50% of our most popular recipes, to a local partner organization. This grassroots effort to increase awareness and raise funds to fight hunger in Brooklyn, NYC’s hungriest borough is in line with our Feeding 1,000 Kids events which has received tremendous support for you our customers and fans over the past 3 years. The simple act of dining in our restaurant on March 7th allows you to get involved and support our efforts to address food insecurity in the local community. The funds we raise will go to Neighbors Together, a Bed-Stuy hunger-fighting organization that provides food to over 10,000 New Yorkers a year.
Together we can fight hunger in Brooklyn. March 7th 2017 at House of Juice 642 Rogers Ave, Brooklyn NY 11226
*Did you know that 20% of Brooklyn households suffer from food insecurity, a federal measurement used to determine the number of people who have limited or uncertain access to adequate food.

â€œGet Focused On Readingâ€ began this endeavor by collecting new and used books from organizations and members of the community and used them to build a bookstore where members of the community could come to purchase books using exercise as currency. Â I started by collecting books from friends and family right away and a month later had an inventory of 2,000 books.Â I then secured a location, distributed flyers, recruited volunteers and personal trainers, formed partnerships, and raised funds to help bring this vision to life.
The greenhouse is full of seedlings and we are putting them outside to harden off this week so we can get them in the soil. And in the meantime, we continue to stay connected with our farming community in NYC.
Watch the clip of Karen’s rousing speech about the start of Black Farmers and Urban Growers and how Rise & Root Farm is part of her journey to bring more people of color to the table.
Thank you again for all your support and please joinÂ us to continue to spread the word!
Last year’s funding increase for BPL was not included in the Mayor’s preliminary budget for this year, threatening the gains we made in expanding branch hours and hiring new librarians. But there is still time for the city to change course and do more, by fully funding libraries. In a time of rising inequality, we must not roll back opportunity. Help us ensure that our neighborhood libraries will continue to thrive and serve as a great equalizerâ€”within a few blocks of every Brooklynite.
These are projects, initiatives and businesses we believe support community and are in line with the House of Juice ethos. Please show your support to these Initiatives or Feeding 1,000 Kids Initiative if building community and a better tomorrow are ideals you believe in.
