Inaugural Bed-Stuy FreshDirect delivery
Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz, Mazhar Alhadid, a dentist from Flushing Avenue in Bedford Stuyvesant, and Jim Moore, senior vice president of business affairs for FreshDirect chat in Bedford-Stuyvesant Thursday.
Brooklyn borough president Marty Markowitz was present to usher in this new era of fresh foods in a box delivered to the doors of Bed-Stuy residents.
"Those who love to eat but are always rushed-both the good cooks and those foodies who, like me, never attained that skill and head straight for the tasty prepared foods, are thrilled that Fresh Direct is catering to underserved neighborhoods, which benefit from the availability of more quality, healthy foods, said Markowitz in a statement.
