Challenge is building a 25,000 square foot Food Hub to create jobs for individuals with disabilities and others facing barriers to employment by sourcing food from local farmers and getting the food to family tables across New York and into New England.  We'll add value to the crops through washing, cutting, processing and packaging and will get them to market through our network of large distributors and grocery store partners.  The building construction is scheduled to begin in May of this year with over 50 farmer partners lined up and ready to go.  We will be carrying squash, corn, peas, tomatoes, garlic and herbs, but we need your help to purchase additional equipment to add value to these crops, increase our job opportunities and reach even more farmers.

The Team: $2,235 TOTAL RAISED SO FAR
