Kudos to Groundwork Hudson Valley for Addressing Food Insecurity in Yonkers
Joel Rodriguez, Brigitte Griswold, and Jason Bonet
With the support of the City of Yonkers, The Community Fund of Bronxville Eastchester Tuckahoe, Con Edison and Domino Sugar/ASR Group, Groundwork has augmented the growing systems of its Science Barge to provide fresh produce to women receiving housing services from the YWCA in Yonkers.
The Science Barge is typically an educational destination, with demonstration gardens where children can learn about how to grow food. But in late March, Groundwork Executive Director Brigitte Griswold put plans in place to triple the amount of produce grown there, in order to address the rapidly growing problem of food insecurity.
