Farm-to-Freezer: An Institutional Guide to Saving Summer’s Bounty

The 2013 Voorhees Fellows worked with Elijah’s Promise to prepare a farm-to-freezer guide. Elijah’s Promise asked the Fellows to create a guide to illustrate how and why Elijah’s Promise processes and freezes fresh food. EP freezes fresh food to save money by extending the shelf life of lower cost and sometimes free summer produce, control food quality, to provide organizational flexibility, to enhance job training efforts, and to build a connection with farmers.
