@judyjoochef Instagram profile imageFrom Soul to Seoul!  Loving spending time with @melbasharlem. Inspiring in every way!! Stay tuned to see what we are stirring up! 
I love getting back to Harlem where I was a math tutor for many years at @storefrontacademyharlem.  I also worked with @slowfoodusa to start their first inner city Slow Food in School’s project, Harvest Time in Harlem. We managed to get a NYC farmers market up to Harlem which at the time only had small bodegas, and lacked grocery stores with fresh healthy food options.  Even though Harvest Time closed after a good 7 year run, the green market remains there to this day serving the community. 🙏🙏🙏
