Healthy Free Food in Harlem

Oct 15, 2022


Welcome to CTIP, The Council for Trade and Investment Promotion! We are a leading organization in the Business and Consumer Services category, dedicated to promoting trade, investment, and community development. In this page, we are thrilled to share with you our initiatives to bring free and fresh food to the community in Harlem. We believe that access to healthy food is essential for individuals and families to thrive, and we are committed to making a positive impact in the local community.

Our Objective

At CTIP, we firmly believe that everyone should have access to fresh and nutritious food, regardless of their socio-economic circumstances. With this objective in mind, our team has been diligently working on establishing partnerships with local farmers, community organizations, and volunteers to bring free and fresh food to the community in Harlem.

Community Gardens

One of our key initiatives is the establishment of community gardens throughout Harlem. These gardens serve as a sustainable source of fresh produce for the local residents. Our dedicated team of volunteers works tirelessly to maintain these gardens, ensuring that they flourish with a wide variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Volunteer Opportunities

We encourage community members to get involved and make a difference. CTIP offers volunteer opportunities in our community gardens where individuals can contribute their time, effort, and expertise in nurturing these thriving green spaces. By volunteering, you not only help cultivate a sustainable and accessible food source but also contribute to the overall well-being of our community.

Food Drives

In addition to community gardens, we organize regular food drives in collaboration with local businesses and organizations. These drives provide much-needed food supplies to individuals and families facing food insecurity. We understand the importance of a balanced diet and strive to distribute a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and other essentials to ensure holistic nutrition in our community.


We firmly believe that collaboration is key to achieving our mission. That's why we actively partner with local grocery stores, farms, and restaurants, leveraging their resources to maximize our impact. These collaborations allow us to gather surplus food that would otherwise go to waste, redistributing it to those who need it the most.

Education and Awareness

CTIP places great emphasis on educating the community about the importance of healthy eating and nutritional awareness. We organize workshops, seminars, and interactive sessions to disseminate information about the benefits of incorporating fresh and nutritious food into daily diets. By empowering individuals with knowledge, we strive to create long-lasting and sustainable positive changes.

Support Our Cause

CTIP's efforts would not be possible without the support of generous donors and sponsors. If you believe in our cause and would like to contribute, we welcome your support. Donations enable us to expand our initiatives, reach more individuals in need, and create a lasting impact on the community. Together, we can make a difference!
