Ithaca's Food Web has morphed into Hot Potato Press!

Dear readers,

I'm pleased to announce the launch of Hot Potato Press, a new and improved version of this website.

Hot Potato Press is the online food news and networking site for Ithaca and Tompkins County, New York. Launched by GreenStar Community Projects (501c3) and the Feeding Our Future Network in 2015, Hot Potato Press is also supported by The Park Foundation, CFCU Community Credit Union, Reimer Consulting, Ancient Wisdom Productions, and the Sustainable Tompkins Neighborhood Mini-Grant Program.

Hot Potato Press is an agile new web forum that welcomes your voice. The site aims to link all voices, initiatives, organizations, businesses across the local food system in our county. It is designed as a civic hub for "all things food," including news & networking. It is an inclusive online connecting platform for building a local food system that is accessible to all and healthy for the earth.

Hot Potato Press will grow and change as more people use it -- your participation is encouraged!

Here are a few ways to get started:
*share the site with your friends
*sign up to receive weekly updates by email (at the bottom of the home page)
*contribute your own comments, questions, stories, ideas, and events
*"like" Hot Potato Press on Facebook and follow us on Twitter
*suggest ideas for topics you'd like to see on the site
*volunteer to be a reporter or photographer
*contact the editor with questions, comments, and to learn more about how to get involved.

Special thanks to all the volunteers and community members who have helped make this resource a reality.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Alison and the Hot Potato Press Team
