We will be visiting the Museum of the City of New York to view the current exhibit Moveable Feast: Fresh Produce and the NYC Green Cart Program and partake in the 2pm gallery talk Moveable Feast - From Farm to Table.

Workshop/Talk:

"Explore how fruits, vegetables, and herbs get to your grocery store or local green cart. Families will tour the exhibition Moveable Feast: Fresh Produce and the NYC Green Cart Program, which documents the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene program that provides underserved communities access to fresh fruits and vegetables via hundreds of independently owned, mobile produce stands known as Green Carts, and then learn about the complex supply chain that brings fresh produce to New York City."

Exhibition:­

“Moveable Feast: Fresh Produce and the NYC Green Cart Program documents an innovative NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene program that provides underserved communities with access to fresh fruits and vegetables via hundreds of independently owned, mobile produce stands known as Green Carts. The exhibition features new photographs who were commissioned by the Aperture Foundation to chronicle the initiative over the course of a year.

The resulting photographs, in styles ranging from portraiture to landscape to street photography, capture not only the carts themselves, but also the stories of the vendors, customers, and their communities. Moveable Feast invites consideration about the geography of food options and its relationship to a community’s health.

Moveable Feast: Fresh Produce and the NYC Green Cart Program was organized by the Museum of the City of New York in collaboration with Aperture Foundation, a not-for-profit organization devoted to photography and the visual arts.”
