Share/Bookmark 

ACP EATS logoThe Active Citizen Project leaving NYCWasteLess EATS initiative is an urban agricultural project that aims to create community-owned and operated four-season farms and food distribution systems in urban neighborhoods. EATS sites involve collaborations with public high schools and community-based organizations. The ultimate goal of EATS is for everyone to be able to eat fresh, healthy, nutritious food.

ACP provides EATS communities with the support to convert large and small underutilized urban spaces into low-cost, high-yield farm sites and social spaces. ACP has worked closely with the Department of Sanitation's Bureau of Waste Prevention, Reuse and Recycling to provide EATS sites with high quality, NYC compost.
