A Chilly Challenge to Bolster Local Food Security

A historic barn in Morrisville, awaits its new purpose. Imagine this old barn transformed into a community hub. Bustling with volunteers and filled with produce from local farms. A space of constant movement where the generosity and hard work of farmers meets the needs of neighbors. The barn renovation is nearly complete. An estimated $20,000 is needed to button up final, important details - doors, bathroom, stairs, wheelchair accessibility, clapboarding, painting, a parking lot, and more. Join the Polar Non-Splash: Shiverin’ to Share! This virtual fundraiser invites you to participate. Get creative! Make a snow angel, shovel some snow, move some stuff with your tractor BUT no snowsuits or boots allowed - the sky's the limit.
