The Farm to Table partnership has been nominated for an annual Sustainability Leadership Awards from Sustainable Seattle. The program is being recognized for efforts to raise the bar for sustainability, with a nomination in the Resource Impact category. Award winners will be announced on January 31, 2014 during a celebration at the Museum of History and Industry. Through the efforts of staff in HSD’s Aging & Disability Services (ADS) and Youth & Family Empowerment (YFE) divisions, the Farm to Table program connects senior meal sites and Seattle child care programs to local area farms with the goal of providing local, organic produce to some of Seattle’s most under-served communities, serving 1250 children and seniors at 50 different meal sites throughout the city. The program also provides training in seasonal menu planning, scratch cooking and nutrition education to staff at participating sites. Sustainable Seattle is a nonprofit organization that promotes sustainability in the Central Puget Sound, nationally, and internationally.
