Harlem's new health hub is really cooking

LISC's newest Community Healthy Food Hub in Harlem is creating a buzz, as features on TV news channel NY1 and in the online journal City Limits attest. A fresh take on the traditional food pantry, the hub is part of LISC's "Communities for Healthy Food NYC" initiative, operating in four of the city’s neighborhoods. It offers one-stop-shopping—bringing together key services like nutritional counseling, free, high quality groceries, cooking classes and access to food stamps—to make it easier for West Harlem's low-income families to live healthier lives.
