The Foodway Corridor Project envisions a food distribution system that connects agricultural producers from the Hudson Valley and Long Island (and beyond) with consumers in New York City using the region’s waterways as the transportation conduit. The project was awarded a research partnership agreement with NYSERDA to evaluate the variety of ways a regional, water-based system of food distribution will potentially benefit the residents of the State.The project was also designated as a Marine Highways Initiative by the US Department of Transportation.
