Get Fresh Yonkers is the umbrella program that is comprised of the Get Fresh Yonkers Farmers Market, the Citizen Farmer program, CSA,  local urban farms, the Youth Farm Team, the Science Barge, the Environmental Food Team, and local schools and universities.

The purpose of this program is to generate economic empowerment in the community through sustainable food projects, while bringing local, fresh and affordable food to Southwest Yonkers. In addition, the program aims to make these projects self-sustainable by cultivating a market for locally grown food.
