Local Food System News

Farm Fresh RI, DEM, and the Office of Healthy Aging Team Up to Make 2,500 Food Boxes Available to Eligible Seniors!  “Farm Fresh Rhode Island is thrilled to partner with the RI DEM to ensure more seniors have access to fresh, local food,” said Farm Fresh RI Market Mobile Sales Director Nikki Ayres.“Our mission is rooted in making connections — empowering local farmers with market-based opportunities to sell their produce to local eaters, which increases farm viability and access to nutritious food for the community. We are thoughtfully sourcing items from a variety of local growers and delivering boxes packed with fresh produce directly to senior centers — feeding people in need right where they are while keeping the journey food takes through the supply chain short.”⁠
We are thrilled to receive federal funding for our critical programs growing access to local food and farm viability across Rhode Island. See Senator Jack Reed announce a $2.1M grant to Farm Fresh RI to boost local farmers markets, promote RI seafood, and expand a successful produce program to encourage healthy eating.
6 Rhode Island farms awarded $118K for solar projects — including one of our longtime local farm partners, Skydog Farm! “The sustainability benefits of hydroponic cultivation always appealed to Katherine Fotiades. Growing plants in a controlled, soil-less environment uses less water and produces more food than traditional field farming.” Read more.
