Grants Bolster Local Food System in Adirondack North Country
The Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA) has awarded eight northern New York farm and food businesses with a total of $100,000 in grant funding for efforts that will bolster food and farm security in the region. Grant awards range from $3,500 to $25,000 and will fund projects that help strengthen local food systems. The funding comes from anonymous donors. The projects selected include equipment that will help a creamery double production, create an on-farm store, boost capacity of a regional food hub, and provide low-income, senior and food insecure audiences with CSA shares, among others.
