JON GRAY, Board Member

Jon Gray of Ghetto Gastro is interesting because he is interested. His curiosity has taken him around the globe and has had him seated across the table from world renowned thinkers, artists and chefs, but he’s most passionate about home. A cofounder of the Bronx based collective Ghetto Gastro, he’s building his own proverbial table, to which he’d like to invite the world. Founded in 2012, Ghetto Gastro honors the block to block shifts and overlap in international cuisine and culture that happens in his borough. The collective is committed to feeding, inspiring and growing young entrepreneurs in the Bronx. Conversations about inclusion, race and economic empowerment are explored through food, as the group occupies the crossroads of design, music, film, visual art and cuisine.
