What's our mission? The mission of HKFP is to create a 'food secure' Hell's Kitchen neighborhood through collaborative farming, education and community initiatives.

What are we doing right now? We are harvesting vegetables from a farm on the roof of the Metro Baptist Church at 410 West 40th Street and giving the produce to RMM Food Pantry and MCCNY's Sylvia Rivera Food Pantry. .
