Insurgo harnesses the power of localization to secure food access for high-need communities. Our goal is to merge local farms, local restaurants, and local Chefs with local residents to sponsor environmental sustainability and economic growth.
Founded in Uptown Manhattan to address local food insecurity, Insurgo
is a community collective committed to nurturing the farm to table
movement in low-income neighborhoods throughout the country.
While low-income communities in New York are eager to change eating
and food purchasing habits, education and a widening income inequality
gap stall change. A scarcity of organic retailers and restaurants
combine with high prices to limit the market for environmentally
Insurgo partners with local farms, restaurants, chefs, and development
agencies to source and serve organic food using innovative cooking
techniques. We provide local communities with practical knowledge and
financial means to eat from farm-to-table, from field-to-fork.
