PROGRAM: Washington County Food Bank

Morgan Livingston has the title “Agricultural Innovations Manager”.  Morgan comes to the Greater Washington County Food Bank with a background in family farming along with a degree in Social Work. The Washington County Food Bank has moved into its current location on Route 40 near Centerville, PA. To become more centrally located the Bank acquired the property to fill the need in the Valley area.
With this location comes a 24 acre farm. The farm will provide the community with fresh, healthy food and will be used to educate and train the community in proper crop management, healthy cooking techniques, educational seminars and the use of hydroponics in food growth. The barn will be used to start poultry and aquaponics and soon to grow a farmer’s market.
The future may bring a county thrift store with products from clothing to donated items and food to be sold at reasonable prices. These funds will be used to expand the programs of the Food Bank.
Prior to our meeting Morgan met with the Trinity High School hydroponics staff and program. Lessons to learn on both programs will bring fresh vegetables year round.
