Mission: Gardenshare's mission is to solve the problem of hunger in st. Lawrence county through policy advocacy work and by strengthening the food system to benefit all county residents.
Programs: Local food guide - gardenshare's annual local food guide and farmers market promotion programs help ensure that the county has a vibrant, local food system where our food choices are healthy for us, for our communities, and for the environment. Snap at the farmers markets - gardenshare makes it possible for people to use snap (food stamps) at area farmers markets, helping support local farmers and helping to ensure that everyone in the county has access to enough nutritious and affordable food to sustain a healthy lifestyle. Csa bonus bucks - gardenshare provides subsidies to help low-income families buy csa shares. This way of securing healthy, fresh, local food could otherwise be out of reach for many working and low-income households. The subsidy is paid directly to the farmer, thus helping the farmer make a living to support his family also.
