Restoration has spearheaded a number of initiatives to tackle the serious health problems that affect low-income communities in Central Brooklyn – such as high rates of obesity, heart disease and diabetes. To facilitate access to healthy food, it has sponsored a modern, well-stocked supermarket (Super Foodtown) on its own premises. For the past four years, it has organized a Farmers Market during the summer months. The market supports local farmers and food producers and is one of the few very places in Bedford-Stuyvesant to offer a wide selection of fresh, organic produce.
