Farm to Senior Pilot Project Report

Posted by Farm Fresh Rhode Island on January 26, 2015

Farm Fresh Rhode Island is pleased to share our report of the “Farm to Senior” project, piloted in senior centers around the state in 2014.

Our sincere appreciation goes out to all of those who helped us implement and document the most recent addition to our “Farm to Cafeteria” endeavors. Rhode Island senior centers represent a great potential market for Rhode Island farmers. Farm Fresh hopes this past season’s “Farm to Senior” activities generate enthusiasm among diners and demand by their meal providers so that RI Grown will appear regularly on Senior Cafe menus. This win-win situation can help improve the freshness of meals and increase seniors access to fresh produce while the RI agricultural economy benefits from an expanded institutional customer base.

Thanks to all who have helped us explore this opportunity!
