The purpose of Ithaca Community Harvest is to create infrastructure to strengthen collaboration amongst food justice and sustainability leaders in our efforts to build local food sovereignty and consciously harmonize our programming to serve as a model for the systems approach needed in our broader society.
Ithaca Community Harvest is the name of the administrative body that supports other organizations, and also has run its own programs. Some programs ran for a few years, such as the Healthy Dinners Program. The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Snack Program is now run by ICH collaborator Wood's Earth, a local farm-to-school non-profit organization. Gleaning and Market Boxes are being re-structured and strengthened.
