Founding Owner, Bed-Stuy Fresh and Local

Dylan is originally from Berkeley Ca. Four years ago he and his partner, Sheila decided to open Bed-Stuy Fresh and Local as a way to bring healthy food at an affordable to price to their neighborhood, Bedford-Stuyvesant. Soon after opening, it was clear they wanted to transition to a worker-owned business as a way to not only challenge the existing food distribution system but also by empowering their staff by giving them ownership of a business in their community. Community, fellowship an cooperation are at the heart of what BSFL is.
