The Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger was featured in Slate’s show about keeping chickens. You can hear from two of our volunteer chicken keepers, our Americorps VISTA volunteer, and Tamara Dawson, our Director of Programs about what the chickens bring to our organization. Of course they bring fresh, nutritious eggs on a daily basis for our pantry customers, but they also bring other benefits. They bring serenity and happiness to the volunteers who care for them. They bring excitement to the children and other community members who help in our urban community garden. And they even bring nutrients to our soil, from their manure!
