Food Justice Program
Now food Justice is an active part of NOFA-NY’s strategic planning. Ultimately, NOFA-NY hopes that, as a membership organization, its membership fully represents the diverse and thriving organic movement – making the tools and the harvest of organic farming available to all in New York State.
Neighborhood Farm Share
NOFA-NY has received funding to develop a program for western New York, inspired by Just Food’s successful low-income CSA model. NOFA-NY will focus on Rochester in the first year of implementation before bringing its program to other parts of the state.Read more about this project HERE
AJP Fair Trade
NOFA-NY will pilot a local Fair Trade label for small direct-sales farms that use sustainable, ecological growing practices and ensure fair compensation for themselves and their workers.Read more about this project HERE.
