Welcome to the 2024 digital ballot for the SOFSA Food Justice Fund. On this website, you can familiarize yourself with the projects seeking funding and cast your vote!

When you cast your ballot, you will be deciding how you want to allocate $21,050 to support food justice initiatives in Syracuse, Onondaga County, and Onondaga Nation. Any resident of this region over the age of 14 is eligible to vote once.

Join us on Thursday April 18th from 5:30-7:30 for our Gather & Grant Celebration at Salt City Market. Voting assistance will be available at this event from 5:30-6:30. Following the close of voting, we'll tally the votes and funded projects will be announced! Stop by for some food and celebration!  

This project is jointly supported by a grant from the NY Health Foundation, the Onondaga County Agriculture Council, and individual contributions from our community through the annual Plant A Seed for SOFSA campaign.
