The Junior League of Buffalo has awarded the Massachusetts Avenue Project $300,000 raised through its 2013 Decorators’ Show House.
The funds will go toward the Community Food Training and Resource Center, which will provide food and agriculture-based education, resources and volunteer opportunities to Buffalo residents, schools, community gardeners and organizations.
The center will include a new indoor and outdoor training space, teaching kitchen, resource library, improved cold storage and tool storage space and offices at the project’s urban farm at 389 Massachusetts Ave. The center also will create a home base for the Massachusetts Avenue Project’s Growing Green Program.
The agency wants to raise the entire capital budget of $650,000 by September.
The Knox Summer Estate at Knox Farm State Park was the location for the Junior League/Buffalo News 2013 Decorators’ Show House.
