Jhal NYC is a social entrepreneurship venture built to empower the Bengali diaspora. We employ stay at home mothers and new immigrants and prepare them for paths they seek to transition to. More than anything we are creating a community for these marginalized groups.
Jhal NYC was created to shine light on the distinct Bengali-New York culture that we grew up in. The taste of the Bengali food we were raised on, the aesthetic and sound of the streets of New York. We adorn our presence with the faces of those like Tagore and Kazi Nazrul because their words are the ones our family sung.
It’s more than just about food, it’s us.
