Upcoming Events

Saturday, September 30th –  Join Sheila McCue and others for an invigorating walk on the Black Diamond trail.  We meet at the entrance to the Ithaca Children’s Garden at 9 a.m. the last Saturday of each month. Questions? 607-227-0313.

Saturday, September 16th – We encourage women to meet downstairs at Waffle Frolic on the 3rd Saturday of each month for casual conversation, if they’d like. At this point we can’t commit to having these gatherings facilitated by a WIT committee member.  However, these gatherings do offer an opportunity for women to meet informally and share their experiences, resources, and encouragement with one another.

 

NEW OPPORTUNITY – Healthy Food for All is a non-profit program of Cornell Cooperative Extension Tompkins County in partnership with local farms.

Since 2006 they have been making fresh, quality produce accessible to low-income families through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) shares and educational resources. Now ending nutritional hunger for close to 200 families, HFFA is recognized as one of our region’s leading community food security programs. A substantial number of their subsidized shares are reserved for single mothers specifically.

Please note that farmers are currently accepting applications for subsidized summer shares through the Healthy Food for All Program.  If you’re interested, it is suggested you apply as soon as possible as there is limited space.  Below, please find a link to the online application form.

For those who prefer applying the more traditional way, paper copies can be printed off of their website and mailed in to your member’s farm of choice along with a deposit.  Paper applications can also be picked up at Cornell Cooperative Extension (615 Willow Ave. Ithaca – business hours are Monday through Friday, 9am – 4pm).

If there are social activities you would like to have offered, please email your suggestions to dianejerdan@yahoo.com.
