  • Fosters the development of new community and residential gardens in neighborhoods throughout the City of Newburgh.


Food Access For Greater Food Security & Health

Food Access for Greater Food Security & Health

NUFFI increases access by residents to locally grown healthy food and reduces food waste by providing community gardens and residents with a way to distribute their excess produce. NUFFI considers and creates opportunities for additional markets for distributing local products.

  • Continues to expand the Newburgh Citywide Produce Donation Program through direct liaison between gardens and food assistance programs, and collaborations with other food access groups.
  • Assists the current Farmers’ Markets and explores other market opportunities.
