Steph is dedicated to ensuring that every New Yorker can access healthy food through his worker-owned food distribution cooperative, Brooklyn Packers. His focus is on creating neighborhood food hubs that connect BIPOC farms and aggregators with communities in need. These hubs improve health and economic outcomes while promoting better nutrition. By envisioning worker-owned hubs encompassing wholesale, retail, and agriculture businesses, he creates abundant job opportunities and ensures year-round access to fresh, local, affordable, and culturally relevant food for all New Yorkers. By addressing basic needs and fostering community connections, Steph believes these hubs can foster more resilient neighborhoods that thrive.
