Happy Farm To Fork’day

Happy birthday to us!

It’s hard to believe that a year has passed since we officially launched the Farm To Fork website. In some ways it feels like only yesterday that the team stood in front of a very supportive crowd as we celebrated the hard work of 30 amazing students from the School of Computer Science at the University of Guelph, and the amazing volunteers and community experts who guided them along the way. So many things have happened since that day, and we have all of you to thank. Without your continued support we wouldn’t be able to do what we do.

So thank you for a very successful first year; a year that saw us grow beyond the walls of Guelph and into the Waterloo region, a year that saw the project recognized by the Elevator Project of Guelph, and a year that saw us supported by the Better Planet Project. It has been an amazing adventure, and we can’t wait to see what our second official year brings.

Of course – we’re far from done. There are still people in our community and beyond who struggle to put food on the table. And because of this we’ll keep working until Farm To Fork is no longer needed. Our mobile app is getting closer and closer to a finished product, we will continue expanding to new communities, and we will keep drafting new plans and new ideas to fight food insecurity – because every person deserves access to healthy food.
