Our partners in distributing our fresh produce as well as other donated food and supplies are looking for volunteers. We know we have the best in town! So, check out this great opportunity to further support your community. Saratoga Wilton Elks Lodge #161
#volunteer #foodjustice #outreach #communitySenior Outreach is rapidly expanding. Two more senior apartments in Saratoga are on our list. We will be meeting the residents on August 30th to discuss the program and enroll anyone interested in signing up. Once they complete the process they will immediately begin receiving food on our deliveries in September.
There are approximately 200 participants currently enrolled, but that number will increase to about 300 with the two new apartments. These numbers do not include the folks at the Backstretch. The numbers there change throughout the season, and the staff informs us when the numbers go up and down.
As you can see, we sure can use your help. If you are interested in giving up a few hours of your time the second and fourth Tuesday and Wednesday of the month, we will be thrilled to include you as a volunteer. It is fun, it is easy, and helping others in need is very fulfilling.
To enroll as a volunteer please email Betsy DeCerbo Coffey at:

Check this out! We are so excited to have the Farm linked to the Saratoga Greenbelt Trail in the future. Did you know about this pilot on Henry Street?HENRY STREET PILOT: SHORT-TERM PROJECT FOR LONG-TERM CHANGE
COMING - Saturday Sept.14th through Sunday Sept. 29th
The City of Saratoga Springs is completing the first two-way cycle track through the heart of downtown as a pilot project from Saturday Sept.14th through Sunday Sept. 29th.
Henry Street will be transformed from a two-way street into a one-way street with a two-way cycle track on one side of the road and dedicated street parking on the opposite side of the road.
This “pilot” project allows the City to test a low cost engineered design – one of three proposed - to create the urban segment of the Saratoga Greenbelt Trail from Lake Avenue to Spring Street. By using short-term, low-cost, and scalable methods, the goal is to improve the safety of Henry Street for all users and make this section of Henry Street a more attractive corridor for cycling, walking, taking transit and enjoying downtown.
