Long Table Harvest

Germantown, NY

Amount granted: $20,000

Grant year: 2018

Grant categories: Environment, Rural Human Services

 

To support the continuation of its Gleaning Program and to support its innovative Columbia County Mobile Market.

Long Table Harvest is a grassroots organization founded in 2015 with the mission to cultivate social and economic equality in the local food system through dynamic, inclusive and creative collaborations across a diverse rural community.  Long Table Harvest focuses on gleaning and distributing fresh fruits, vegetables and meats from local farms to food pantries as a way of alleviating the burden hunger plays on the community.  This year, Long Table Harvest will also make wholesome food available to everyone in the county by bringing a market directly to consumers. The CCMM is designed to be a fair and convenient way to purchase food year-round that will offer a range of minimally processed foods to meet the tastes and needs of all people living in the county. The project is a community-centered response to the immediate challenges of a food- and economically-insecure environment that currently exists in the county.
