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

BobbyNorbu Dear Visitor, hello! I'm Bobby Norbu - although a female - and I wound up here at the SPCA when my person had a new roommate move in who turned out to be allergic to me. Sniff. She reported correctly that I am friendly, and that I love to cuddle and meet people. I've always been an inside girl, and I appreciate a good window where I can sit and watch the interesting things that happen outside. I guess the only thing that might keep you from taking me home at once is that I'm not very fond of other felines. Perhaps I just want to be your One and Only. Can you picture us together?
