Students are in the midst of the Food Justice course with Farmer Yon. They are exploring the fundamentals of food justice and the history of various food justice battles. In this course, students dissect and analyze the fights for racial, economic, and environmental justice and how they impact our work. They now understand how food justice differs from food security and food sovereignty.
Farmer Yon has helped guide students in embodying food justice for nearly every cycle of the Citywide program. Farmer Yon looks forward to introducing this cohort to the Hattie Carthan Community Garden soon, where they can gather for various celebrations [โ€ฆ]

Joy and sorrow fill the GardenShare office. Kathryn Puleo will be transitioning to a new role at the St. Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce this spring. This new opportunity presented itself and aligns with her long-term professional goals. As the farmers market manager for Canton, Gouverneur, and Potsdam, she was excited to take on the challenge of developing the new role within GardenShare. Iโ€™m sure she will continue to partner with and support the farmers markets and GardenShare family, and we wish her the best of luck in her new adventure. We will miss her, but [โ€ฆ]

Happy New Year, everyone! Another year has come and gone, and as we turn the page on 2022, Iโ€™d like to take a moment to reflect with gratitude on all that weโ€™ve accomplished during this busy, but productive year.

WIC waivers, flexibilities and enhancements related to the COVID-19 pandemicโ€”including remote services and the Cash Value Benefit (CVB) increaseโ€”reduced barriers to participation and increased access to healthy food. Recent federal action has addressed these two essential, but temporary WIC flexibilities.

WIC remote services have been extended through at least mid-April 2023. As a result, WIC agencies may continue to enroll and serve participants through virtual appointments. These flexibilities are tied to the federal public health emergency (PHE). Health and Human Services Secretary, Xavier Becerra, guaranteed 60-daysโ€™ notice of [โ€ฆ]

Happy Holidays from Albany Community Action Partnership (ACAP)

To All of Our Supporters and Friends,

ACAP would like to wish you the happiest of holidays to you and your families and want to thank everyone who has made our work possible. Though this time of year encourages reflection and expressions of gratitude, we experience the positive impact of our work on practically a daily basis. A smile on a childโ€™s face, an expression of relief from a customer visiting our food pantry, celebrating when someone receives a job offer after completing our certification program โ€“ these are things we get to see every day. This season does not override the accomplishments for the whole year; they invite [โ€ฆ]
