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

HarrietAre you looking for an already trained, gentle, and loving new best friend? If so, choose me! I'm Harriett, a thirteen year young hound mix who had to come to the shelter after my person had to move into an apartment. It has been a challenging adjustment since I only knew what it was like to live with her, but I've made so many friends here at the shelter, so I know I'm in good hands! Even though I'm a little more slow and stiff than I was in my younger days, I'll still happily go for slow meandering walks and follow you around the house. I've lived with cats and dogs, and would be fine with calm school-aged children too if they know to be gentle with me. I can't wait to live out my golden years with my new person - could that lucky person be you? Come say hello today!
