postheadericon 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

appa

Appa is a sweet Shepherd/Cattle dog mix who has lived with both dogs and cats before, and got along great with them. Appa's playstyle may be too much for some dogs, so a dog meet is a must if you have another canine at home. We've found that Appa is a bit wary of strangers, but will warm up to you quickly if you give him a chance to get to know you on his own terms. He is reportedly crate trained and housebroken. We believe Appa will be the star of any obedience class because of how intelligent he is. Come meet this wonderful boy today, you won't be able to resist bringing him home!
