Corbin Hill Food Project

Mission Statement

Corbin Hill Food Project is a nonprofit food distributor with the mission to supply fresh food where it is needed most.

"Llevar alimentos frescos a las áreas más necesitadas."

Corbin Hill Food Project is a food hub; an organization that actively manages the collection and distribution of farm fresh produce, from local and regional farmers, with the purpose of strengthening farmers’ capacity and access to consumers. Corbin Hill goes further than many other food hubs, by ensuring the fresh produce we gather from local New York farmers goes where it is needed most.

We work with farmers from upstate New York and community groups in New York City to deliver fresh, local produce to Harlem, Washington Heights and the Bronx — and increasingly, other New York City boroughs as well. The neighborhoods we serve in the Greater New York area do not have easy access to to affordable good quality healthy food, and our mission is to change that, by supplying food where it is needed most.

God’s nearness brings life to all that we do—to our worship, our friendships, our families, our thought life, our studies, and our work.
