new food rescue program in the hudson valley
Long Table Harvest is a farm food rescue program serving low-income residents in Columbia County, NY, co-founded by long-time Greenhorn Audrey Berman. They've partnered with 16 farms in the county to glean surplus produce from June to November and are working with 14 pantries and community based organization to distribute produce to those in need. Columbia County is a uniquely fertile region with the second most farms in the Hudson Valley but a quarter of the population has limited access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Please consider donating to their worthy cause.
