SoBRO is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life in the South Bronx by generating effective economic, housing, educational and career development programs for youth and adults
Initiated in 2015, “The Bronx Salad” was a direct response to the Robert Wood Johnson County Health Rankings Report that placed the Bronx in the last place, 62 out of 62; the unhealthiest county in New York. This also sparked Borough President Diaz’s health initiative #NOT62; a Campaign to improve health outcomes for Bronx residents by 2020. The Bronx Salad Project is a collaboration between SOBRO, the United Business Cooperative (UBC) and the Bronx Health REACH. After sampling several salads, the Bronx Salad was selected by a community vote, its ingredients illustrating a cohesion of ethnic flavors that represent the diversity of the borough. The harvesting of the salad ingredients is conducted on a local youth-led hydroponic garden, with the remaining ingredients locally sourced. The salad made its first debut at the 6th Annual Savor the Bronx Restaurant Week in November 2016, and its second debut during New York City’s Restaurant week in January 2017. The Bronx Salad is being offered at Mott Haven Bar and Grill, Delmys, Don Pancho’s Steak House, Viktoria Italian House, Camaguey, and all Delicioso and Mexicosina restaurant locations in the Bronx.
