The Hudson Valley Farm Fresh Food Initiative provides annual grants to regional nonprofits to bring more fresh Hudson Valley produce to people in the region who need it most. Since its launch, this program has served over 1 million pounds of fresh food to tens of thousands of people.
Out of this innovative initiative the Foundations has partnered with other organizations and entities to launch an app (FeedHV) that links food donations to those experiencing hunger while mitigating waste, and to create a sustainable source of revenue for the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley through the manufacture and sale of AppleHoni.
The Initiative began with generous support of the Local Economies Project of the New World Foundation and has grown to include support from other foundation partners including the NoVo Foundation, the Ralph E. Ogden Foundation, the Thompson Family Foundation, the Louis Greenspan Trust, the Bruderhof and other generous donors. Join them in making nutritious food accessible here.
