FRESH Crew and volunteers at the Broad Street snack beds.

Welcome to FRESH New London!

FRESH New London is a tiny but mighty food justice organization. We work through three buckets: Empowering Youth, Connecting Community and Growing Food to dismantle systemic oppression and build food sovereignty.

What’s New At FRESH?

Last workday of the season

The Dream Market ended for the season but you can still come see us!

Join us on Saturday October 30th for our Garlic Planting party. We’ll put the gardens to bed and fire up the pizza oven!

Hope to see you there.

Monthly HIC Panel

Our monthly panel on Racism as a Public Health issue will be on pause until further notice. We hope to resume at the beginning of 2022.

McDonald Park Mural Project

Artist Roodley Merilo , who came to FRESH through our youth program, is creating a stunning mural with his photographs for our McDonald Street garden. We’ll be holding an artist’s reception on Thursday, 10/14 (with food and drinks) at the garden at 5pm.
Please join us!

Food Justice Corner

Food justice promotes a food system that is inclusive, community-led and participatory, without the exploitation of people, land, or the environment. It identifies and acts to remove the significant structural inequities that exist within our food and economic systems. Food justice activists seek to establish healthy, resilient communities with equitable access to nourishing and culturally appropriate food.  –Portland/Multnomah Food Policy Council
