In early April, when the COVID-19 pandemic forced restaurants and schools to shut down, and farmers were being forced to dump milk and throw out good food, one generous person in Lewis County, NY decided to buy eggs from a farm that were otherwise going to waste and donate them to the South Lewis school meal delivery program to get them to local families in need.
Inspired to support our local farmers, prevent good food from going to waste, and get healthy foods to local families that need them, our wonderful community has risen to the cause and generously donated to our GoFundMe campaign to sponsor the addition of healthy, local farm foods to the South Lewis Central School meal delivery program.Donate Now
A team of school employees, farmers, agriculture experts and other volunteers formed to find local surplus farm foods and get them delivered to local families. A handful of tech and business experts from across the country also got involved through COVID Accelerator, putting technologies in place to make the process more efficient and help scale Farm to Community to more areas.Follow Us on Facebook
So far we've arranged deliveries of local milk, maple syrup, eggs, cheese sticks, and fresh produce to the families of the South Lewis Central School district. We were recently featured in the local Watertown Daily Times and are working on expanding the initiative to the Lowville, NY school district and other areas.Read More
