About Rivertowns Village Green Inc:
Rivertowns Village Green Inc (RVG) is a NY based 501(c)(3) nonprofit run by local volunteers from Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow. To activate our mission, RVG created and operates The Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow Farmers Market ("The TaSH").
Our mission is to:
• Improve access to quality locally produced food
• Connect people and farmers
• Enhance public understanding of our food system
• Stimulate community conversation about sustainability, food, health and food justice
• Serve as a village green for diverse community interests, activities and entertainment
With support from partners, donors and sponsors, 2016 was a banner year for the TaSH and the community. With our partners, 5,000 pounds of food was distributed to Westchester families in need, 3,000 pounds of old clothing was recycled and removed from the waste stream, $10,000 in food tokens was distributed to low-income residents, and we doubled SNAP (food stamp) benefits through our matching program. In addition, we hosted 50 musical acts, 40 childrens activities, and 25 community organizations. All cultural and educational programming was offered free to everyone in our community.
Your support allows us to continue this work, and expand these amazing programs. Thank you!
