Food Justice

The Brooklyn Heights Community Fridge located next to the First Presbyterian Church of Brooklyn at 124 Henry st is a local hub to combat food insecurity. Donors actively contribute food and fresh produce for all.

We recognize community fridges as an indicator of a community that cares.

How can you participate? Our suggestion is to donate fresh and labeled food/produce. For more information, visit their Instagram page

  • Bonus: First Presbyterian Church of Brooklyn distributes food weekly from their food pantry for all on Thursdays 10a-11a

The Art of Mental Health

Art is widely known to express what many cannot put into words. Various studies conducted by the World Health Organization have demonstrated a direct link between artistic expression & health and wellbeing.

We believe public art on display is a contribution to community mental health. DUMBO is a well decorated area for this. Feeling stress or anxiety? How about going for an art walk and observing DUMBO’s latest?

Getting Physical

Regular physical activity is medicine for the body.

We encourage cycling as your go-to mode of transportation. When you cycle, you are engaging in a low-impact form of exercise with a lesser chance of injury than other fitness methods.

Some benefits to cycling include:

  • Improved strength & stamina
  • Total body workout engaging all major muscle groups
  • Self-regulated intensity
  • Saves time

Cycling has improved in popularity throughout NYC and continues as more affordable options for cyclists arise.

Don’t let the hustle & bustle of DUMBO dissuade you from hopping on the nearest Citi Bike and getting to where you need to go.

Find Your Tribe

No one was meant to live in isolation. Belonging to community boosts mental & physical health. Whether you belong to a cultural, special interest group, or faith-based community, finding your people makes all the difference in how your social needs are met.

We want to shout out Good Co. Bike Club. They are an actively growing cycling community that arose out of the pandemic to change the narrative around cycling. They meet very regularly to ride throughout the 5 boroughs- especially Brooklyn.
