Thanks For a Great Growing Season:  Late July 2015 003As we settle in for the long New England winter, we can warm ourselves with the memories of a great growing season come and gone, and looking forward to the next one.  We would like to extend a very warm thank you to all our volunteers and supporters and of coarse  the youth who participated in our Spring Break Week of Service and Summer Crew Program.  We got to share our passion for creating a just and sustainable food system for our community with some special people and are excited to work with old friends and new ones in the future.
We have made real progress in our goal of connecting school cafeterias with local farmers and with our dedicated and talented team of educators, school lunch professionals and farmers in New London county FRESH is very excited to continue to build upon the momentum for food system change with this amazing group.  Of course the winter is the slow season for a farming organization in this part of the country, but we are working to get ready for next years growing season and youth program and to change your perception of the food justice movement in our community from THIS:
Late July 2015 008
To THIS:

Late July 2015 009

 

 Together we can build and sustain a healthy and just food system; we will exercise our collective power to establish community food security in Connecticut, and take part in the global movement for food justice.
