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

KayceeJade Kaycee Jade came to us when her owners decided to move away and couldn't take her with them. She has been described as a sweet kitty who just needs a bit of time to trust someone, especially with men. She did not have any litterbox issues in her old home and has lived with another cat. Once she gets to know you, Kaycee Jade will follow you everywhere and "talk" to you to let you know how happy she is to be in your presence.  Oddly enough, she takes a special shining to teenage girls. Are you looking for your new loyal feline friend? Talk to an adoption counselor to bring home Miss Kaycee Jade today!
