The Food and Health Network comes to Delaware County

Please join us! The Food and Health Network (FaHN) of South Central New York will be holding its meeting in Delaware County next Thursday, July 28 from 2:00-4:00pm. We will first convene at Lucky Dog Farm for a tour and after a short "business" meeting, we will move on for a tour of the Walton Community Garden. This meeting is open to the public, and we're always eager to see some new faces in the group. Please RSVP or direct any questions to the FaHN Coordinator, Rose Zonetti, at or (607) 692-7669.

FaHN is an eight-county network (Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Otsego, Tioga, and Tompkins) that aims to create food secure communities and improve the quality of life in South Central New York by supporting practices, projects, and policies that lead to increased use of nutritious and locally produced foods. We hold a monthly meeting to gather people from all sectors of the food system throughout our region as a means of generating dialogue, sharing projects, and finding ways to collaborate across sectors and counties. Our primary meeting location is Binghamton, but in an effort to engage all areas of our region, we hold an off-site meeting every other month.
