After several months of construction and getting our systems down pat, the FoodChain/GleanKY Farm-To-Kitchen program made our first delivery to Embrace Church on Monday, December 11th. We were able to provide a Fall Vegetable Soup Base comprised of produce donated by UK South Farm (Fayette County), Henderson’s Eclectic Emporium (Fayette County), Reed Valley Orchard (Bourbon County) and Stonehedge Farm (Woodford County). We also delivered Frozen Baked Apples from Reed Valley Orchard (Bourbon County), and a Diced Bell Pepper Mix from Henkle’s Herbs (Jessamine County) for The Gathering, a community meal which is prepared by Paula Devers and her team of volunteers in the Embrace Kitchen on most Monday evenings.
We are ever so excited to get this food out to more families and kitchens in 2018 and are working closely with Nathaniel Mission, Fayette County Family Care Center, Embrace Church and Lexington Rescue Mission with deliveries of lightly processed, frozen food coming up in the next few weeks to all of these organizations and more! If your organization would be interested in receiving products from the Processing Kitchen, if you’d like to know more about the FoodChain/GleanKY Farm-To-Kitchen Program, or if you have any questions about the FoodChain Processing Kitchen in general, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
