CHEMUNG CO., N.Y. — We are pleased to announce our first Taste of Chemung Gift Box. In place of our annual fundraising dinner, we are selling a box of locally sourced farm and food products. Due to our plans for marketing and selling these boxes, we are looking for sample sized and non-perishable goods. With an assortment of local goods and a guide to Chemung County agriculture, these will make an excellent holiday gift box for friends, family and neighbors!
As with previous years, all the proceeds will be used to support the educational programs of our association, which include 4-H Youth Development, Agriculture, Master Gardener, EastSide Farmers’ Market, Recycling and Natural Resources, Nutrition, Chemung Volunteer Action Corps, and the Poverty Reduction Coalition. These program areas support our mission to extend the research of Cornell and the Land Grant University System along with the best local knowledge to Chemung County residents to help them improve their quality of life and communities. It must be noted, that although we are affiliated with Cornell University and receive some government funding, CCE Chemung is a separate non-profit organization led by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of Chemung County residents. Thus, we must rely on grants and fundraisers, like Taste of Chemung, to help cover the costs of our programs.
The Taste of Chemung Gift Box contains an assortment of sample-sized products from local farms. Gift boxes are $40 each and can be ordered here:
Gift Boxes are now available. There are a limited number, so place your order now!
