We believe that healthy food should be available to everyone, regardless of income!
Healthy Food for All Program was founded as a partnership of Cornell
Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County and area farms, including the
Full Plate farms, Early Morning Farm, Sweet Land Farm, Ithaca Organics, The Good Life Farm, Buried Treasures Farm, Westhaven Farm, and Kestrel Perch Berries. The program provides
subsidized CSA shares to low-income households in the Ithaca area. HFFA is made possible by many local fundraising efforts, like Harvest Dinner ticket sales, other benefit events, and donations from individual CSA members--these shares are truly "community supported!"
Healthy Food for All members receive a bountiful weekly share of the local harvest from one of the participating farms, and can also take advantage of free nutritional cooking classes to gain skills and ideas of how to prepare the variety of local produce in their shares, as well as biweekly workshops on food preservation, home composting and fun u-pick trips to fruit farms.
