Comfort Food Community and the Southern Adirondack Library Systems (SALS) are excited to announce that our collaborative ‘Farm-2-Library’ initiative will resume on Tuesday, July 21st!
So, how does it work?
Fresh Food Collective (FFC) is a mobile produce distribution program operated by Comfort Food Community. FFC harvests and purchases excess produce from local farms that is then distributed among the program’s participating libraries. The produce, much of which would have otherwise gone to waste, is made available to those in need.
All are welcome to visit the libraries and take home fresh fruits and veggies- free of charge!
The Farm-2-Library initiative plays three very important roles in our community: making healthy food accessible to all, supporting the local food economy and reconnecting individuals with the abundance of resources that libraries have to offer.
“Public libraries play a vital role in the health of a community,” says Erica Freudenberger of the Southern Adirondack Library System. “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to collaborate with Comfort Food Community to improve the lives of the people we serve, and to give them another reason to visit our wonderful libraries.”
