The Gathering of SE WI & The Fresh Produce Preservation Project

The Gathering of Southeast Wisconsin – a 501 (c)(3) community meal program in Milwaukee – is hoping to connect with local farms/food sources who may be interested in partnering with the Fresh Produce Preservation Project (FPPP). With the FPPP, The Gathering is able to collect donation of extra produce and then prepare and freeze the harvest in order to add nutritious touches to our free, community meals year round. In the 2011-12 growing season we were able to preserve 3,477.5 pounds! Do you have surplus produce you would be willing to donate? Or do you have ideas for how we can network and expand our project?  Please contact Becky at Beckylong@thegatheringwi.org or 414-272-4122.  Read more about the project at The Gathering.
