Story

The Glynwood Center for Regional Food and Farming is an agricultural nonprofit with a mission to ensure the Hudson Valley is a region defined by food, where farming thrives.  Catalyzed by the challenges and opportunities for our food system that COVID-19 has laid bare, we invite you to JOIN US as we feed families in need, support small and mid-sized farms, and build health in our region.  Read our full story below....

It is clearer than ever before: we need a more resilient food system.  

In the wake of COVID-19, thousands of Hudson Valley residents lost their jobs and demand for hunger relief across the region skyrocketed. At the same time, local farms saw increased demand for their products from full price customers, leaving less food to flow into the emergency food system through typical farm donations.  It was a perfect storm: leaving those living on the edge of precarity unable to afford fresh, healthy food and farmers facing mounting pressures to meet ever increasing demand.  

While COVID has accelerated our awareness and the urgency of these issues, these disparities and vulnerabilities have long existed in our regional food system. Food donations are important, but only provide short-term relief. To correct systemic inequities will require hard, slow, thoughtful work, which is why  -- at the urging of our farm and food access partners -- we have launched our newest initiative: Local Food for Every Table, inspired by work begun by the Hudson Valley's own Maggie Cheney of Rock Steady Farm and Flowers. Through this work, we commit to building a regional food system where every Hudson Valley resident, regardless of ZIP code or income, can access farm-fresh, nutrient dense food.

Local Food for Every Table is a holistic regional approach to increasing food access during and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic.  Through this initiative we will:

  • Maximize the donations from our own farm to local hunger relief efforts like Philipstown Food Pantry, Second Chance Foods and Fred's Pantry;
  • Expand our revolving fund for our CSA is a SNAP project -- which connects SNAP-users and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farmers in new and innovative ways;
  • Advance regional food sovereignty by contracting small-to-mid-scale, local farms - especially those lead by people who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQ+ and women - to grow food at fair market value to supply grassroots hunger relief efforts.

We need your support to make Local Food for Every Table a success, as well as continue our long-standing work to train the next generation of farmers, empower food systems changemakers, and build coalitions that will transform our regional food system for the long-run. Please join us with your gift today and tune in to the UnGala to see how your donations are making a difference!
