Because of this, there are a few needed adjustments to our workspace in order to run more smoothly with our future in mind. We also have a strong need for more active participants and are forming Action Teams (explained further below)! Board positions are also available.

Alex Freeman did a wonderful job on his film "Pickers" (click HERE to watch) which stars us Flower City Pickers of Rochester, NY. This film was entered in the Fast Forward Film Festival and awarded one of three Jury Awards. Congratulations Alex and FCP!

It's a detailed and delightful film which takes you with us Pickers through our market Saturday-showing you how we collect our food, sort these donations, and how our beneficiaries are thankful for our contributions.

Give it a watch, share it on social media, and of course, volunteer or donate to us if you can!

THANKS FOR LAST NIGHT AND WE’LL BE ON WAYO IN THE MORNING!

BIG thank you to all our supporters last night! Our Fundraiser Dance Party was a success. Thank you Alex Freeman for filming and editing the film Pickers about us and having such a great theater set up with help from WXXI's Brian. And of course, thank you to the Bug Jar for letting us have our 2 Year Anniversary Party at your place two years in a row! 
 
Hope everyone enjoyed the pizza and wonderful raffle baskets. We wouldn't be here without your help and support!
 
WAYO DJ'ed later in the night and invited us on to their Good Vibes Radio Show tomorrow morning. Be sure to tune in Thursday at 7am for our FCP spot where we will talk about us and the film! Full show is from 6am-8am.
