Foodlink’s first Fall Festival held at its community farm
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Foodlink hosted its inaugural Fall Festival on Saturday at its community farm on Lexington Avenue. The event included free pumpkins, cider, donuts, games, and more. The Curbside Market was on site with coupons, and Foodlink’s Community Health team also lead cooking demonstrations for guests.
The event comes at the conclusion of the growing season for the farm, which serves as a community garden for local residents, a majority of whom are resettled refugees, in the Edgerton and Lyell-Otis neighborhoods. Foodlink also uses part of the farm as a commercial growing space for some of its programs, such as the Curbside Market and the Foodlink Community Kitchen.
