CCE, GCSD hold free Farm to Fork Local Food Expo

GUILDERLAND — Local vendors, growers, and buyers are invited to attend the free Capital District Region Farm to Fork Local Food Expo on Wednesday, Jan. 22, from noon to 4 p.m. at Guilderland High School.

The school is located at 8 School Rd. in Guilderland Center. If the weather is bad, the expo will be held on Thursday, Jan. 23, instead.

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Albany County and the Guilderland Central School District are sponsoring the event.

“If you are a vendor/grower looking to increase your visibility and sales with local regional businesses like schools, institutions, restaurants, wholesalers and supermarkets, then you should plan on attending this free event,” said a release from Cornell Cooperative Extension.

“If you are a buyer,” the release continued, “you will have the opportunity to meet regional growers, small-scale food processors, bakers, and many more. You will be able to sample high quality products and increase your procurement of locally grown and produced products.

“If you are a school district, connecting with vendors at this event may help you reach your goal of at least 30 percent locally produced ingredients used in your lunch program. Schools reaching the 30-percent level will see an increase in the school lunch reimbursement rate.”

There is no cost to attend this event, but participants are asked to register by contacting Sydney Joy at Cornell Cooperative Extension Albany County, through email at or by phone at 518-765-3579.

No alcoholic products or CBD-based products are allowed on school grounds.
