1 in 10 Sullivan County residents struggle with food insecurity, and 1 in 5 children receives SNAP benefits to ensure their next meal.
This year, CCE Sullivan launched the new Sullivan Fresh Mobile Farmers’ Market on the Move in Wurtsboro and Fallsburg, and the Sullivan Fresh Monticello Farmers’ Market to get more fresh produce to Sullivan County residents’ plates.
To expand to sites in Liberty, Bethel, and public and senior housing in 2020, we need to bank $7,500 to purchase wholesale product, $3,000 for Mobile Market fuel, and $5,000 for a seasonal market assistant for a total fundraising goal of $15,000.
With a mission to make fresh fruits and vegetables affordable and easily available we’re helping support a healthier Sullivan County and a thriving agricultural community to communities within Sullivan County, while putting an extra $7,000 into the local farm economy.
In addition, CCE Sullivan hosted Taste NY pop-ups at the Monticello, Liberty, and Pine Bush farmers’ markets, opening new markets for value-added producers and growing sales over two months by $3,000.
Please consider a generous contribution to help expand the Sullivan Fresh Farmers’ Markets. All contributions are tax deductible!
Thank you for the past, and we look forward to continuing to serve farmers, families, and youth in Sullivan County for decades to come.
