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 Ashley Fleming

Odie Odie was a stray brought to the shelter by his finder, who already has several cats of her own. Odie tested positive for FIV; cats who test positive can and do live perfectly normal lives, just as long as non-FIV felines. Odie's rescuer reported that he is sweet and friendly, though a little skittish in noisy environments On the other hand, Odie himself is pretty vocal - perhaps he just likes to make his own noise! Nevertheless, we feel Odie would do best in a home without children, given his concern with noises. If you are interested in taking this beautiful boy home, Odie would be dee-lighted!This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..">
