Connecting local mouths to local food

ONLINE — For residents of Sullivan and Wayne counties, there’s a tool that can help you connect to your nearest local food resource. The maps include local farms, farmers’ markets and food pantries. 

The Cornell Cooperative Extension (CCE) hosts its map at www.bit.ly/cornellfarming

Wayne County’s map was inspired by CCE’s map and created by Canaltown of Honesdale, PA. View it at www.canaltown552.com/maps
