Forgetting about something in the back of your fridge, shopping while hungry, or an aversion to leftovers are just a few common habits that lead to wasting food at home. While we cannot rescue food from your fridge, we can work with fine food makers and produce growers to upcycle pulp and peels to make an amazing snack cracker- Seconds™!

Composting; Farming / Community Gardening
The Prospect Farm is a non-profit, cooperative project in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, that is working together to grow food in a formerly vacant lot, owned by Tom Angotti and Emma Matos, with the mission toward creating a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Farm that can serve our community. Since March 2010 Prospect Farm has been a community project development toward producing healthy local food as an alternative to industrial food. Our objective is diversity in food production and membership. We are slowly creating healthy soil through our community composting project and farm without chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. Prospect Farm is a community association with membership open to all. Members improve and farm the land and sustain ties with local residents, businesses and organizations. We support the Brooklyn Food Coalition and other initiatives for food sovereignty and food justice.
