postheadericon Finger Lakes Fresh Food Hub Groundbreaking

fffhgroundbreakingChallenge Workforce Solutions held a groundbreaking Thursday for the Finger Lakes Fresh Food Hub in Groton. The Food Hub will create over 35 new jobs and connect family farmers with distributors and consumers to provide much greater access to high-quality local foods year-round.

At the 18,000 square foot facility products from many regional farms will be processed and packaged for convenient pick-up by distributors, who will deliver the products to grocery stores, schools, healthcare facilities, restaurants and food pantries throughout the region.

Building on our agricultural experience through our existing Finger Lakes Fresh brand and distribution network, this project will create new jobs in our area, promote stability and growth for family farmers, and make healthy, local food more accessible to consumers at a reasonable cost. Construction of the facility is expected to be completed by October 2013.

Little Mocha is a wonderful girl with beautiful tortie markings and a sweet-as-can-be personality to match! She came to us because she was very scared of the toddler in the home, but Mocha is now in good spirits and we're confident we can find a more suitable match quickly! Her previous guardian reports that Mocha is a lap cat, enjoys the company of other cats, and loves a laser pointer. At only five years young, Mocha has a full lifetime to share with her new person. Could that lucky person be you? Come in and visit with this beautiful girl today!
