What good is spinach if I don’t know how to use it? This multi-partner project led by LifeCycles Project Society will link food gleaning programs and agencies who distribute gathered food to vulnerable populations and integrate 39,000 lbs. of rescued fruit, 10 distribution agencies, 350 volunteers and leaders, and reach over 1,000 clients who will have better access through food skills workshops. The Capital Region Food and Agriculture Initiative Roundtable will host six roundtables to expand community food networks in the core capability areas identified by the Food Security Road Map produced this spring.
