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.

Pet of the Week

by Rochelle Davis

Fred Hi there, I'm Fred - a Southern gentlepup all the way from Alabama! I'm a simple dog, and love nothing more than a long meandering walk followed by a snooze in my person's lap. As an introvert, my ideal home would be a quieter one with similar minded people who will allow me to get used to my new home at my own pace. Once we've become friends, I'll be your most loyal companion and will always be by your side. I will happily live with another calm dog, and high-school aged children would be just fine. If I sound like the perfect match for you, come in and say hello!
