Fresh veggies in the summer

What happens with our school gardens in the summer? Throughout summer, Hudson Valley Seed grows crops to be ready for harvest when school starts in September, and we also harvest throughout the summer for education programs and for donation to food pantries. We expect to donate more than 1,000 pounds this summer!

Looking to keep connecting your young ones with accessible healthy food over the summer? Check out these lists for the Newburgh and Beacon free summer lunch sites, soup kitchens, and food pantries that Hudson Valley Seed will be partnering with this summer.

Big thanks to Shayna Russo, Eat Smart New York Hudson Valley Region's Regional Coordinator at Cornell Cooperative Extension, for creating these resources. Contact Shayna with any updates!
