Food from small-scale family farms is often more expensive than food at chain grocery stores, putting it out of reach for many Adirondack families. It is also more sustainable, ethical, and better for our local economy. We are working towards a future in which Adirondack farmers can feed the region and local families can afford to buy local food by providing a 30% discount on farm fresh products for qualifying families.
Projects for the Adirondacks
We have nine active projects that have three things in common: they address unmet needs, promote vibrant communities, and preserve the character of the Adirondacks.

Student Public Service Announcement Contest
AdkAction is accepting submissions for a COVID-19 Public Service Announcement (PSA) Contest focusing on the theme “Spread the word, Not the virus”.
All New York State middle and high school students are eligible to enter. The winner will receive a $1,000 prize and have their PSA showcased on television and at the Beyond the Peaks Student Film Festival.
AdkAction members and partners are celebrating a major legislative milestone that will reduce road salt contamination in the Adirondacks. The Randy Preston Road Salt Reduction Act, which passed in both state houses with bi-partisan support in July, was signed into law by Governor Cuomo today.
