Today's guest of Talk CNY presented by NBT Bank is Maarten Jacobs, director of Community Prosperity, Allyn Family Foundation and executive director, Syracuse Urban Partnership.

This is a story about the Salt City Market (SCM) in Syracuse, a market and food hall providing culinary options as diverse as our city. It was created by the Syracuse Urban Partnership, a project of the Allyn Family Foundation, with support from numerous community leaders. CenterState CEO's Up Start program provides SCM entrepreneurs and vendors with business trainings and one-on-one technical assistance. SCM is transforming Syracuse. It's all about food, culture, and enabling people to build generational wealth doing what they love.

In his role at the Allyn Family Foundation, Maarten Jacobs, MSW, is co-developing a Community Prosperity Initiative which aims to disrupt concentrated poverty in targeted Syracuse neighborhoods by empowering residents to fulfill their full potential, while contributing to the well-being of their families and the revitalization of their neighborhoods. Within this initiative, a strong focus is being placed on creating economic opportunities, economic empowerment, and vibrant neighborhoods where residents are empowered to transform their communities into the places where their families thrive. As part of his work as the Director of Community Prosperity, he is the acting executive director of the Syracuse Urban Partnership, a nonprofit organization created to build and operate the Salt City Market, a space for people to build generational wealth doing what they love. A space where everyone feels a sense of belonging, ownership and civic pride.
