Harlem’s Chef JJ Johnson To Serves Meal At Food Bank For NYC’s Community Kitchen

February 8, 2018

Word has it that on Friday, James Beard-nominated Chef JJ Johnson is planned to serve signature dishes from his new cookbook “Between Harlem And Heaven,” for Harlem seniors at Food Bank For New York City’s Community Kitchen.

A longtime neighborhood chef at celebrated restaurants Minton’s Playhouse and The Cecil, as well as a member of Food Bank For New York City’s Junior Board, Chef Johnson is using this opportunity to share his new recipes with his local community.

Harlem has the highest rate of food insecurity in Manhattan – more than 29% of Central Harlem residents struggle with food insecurity and 25% rely on SNAP benefits (food stamps).

Guests include Food Bank For New York City Junior Board Member and James Beard-nominated Chef JJ Johnson, Dr. Camesha Grant, Vice President of Community Connections and Reach, Food Bank For New York City and Harlem seniors and residents who use Food Bank’s Community Kitchen & Food Pantry.
