A visit to CLiCK, the Commercially Licensed Cooperative Kitchen in Willimantic is highlighted in the July 14 issue of the Department of Agriculture’s Connecticut Weekly Agricultural Report. Commissioner Reviczky toured the facility and the community garden on the grounds of the former Knights’ of Columbus building, which now includes beehives and a composting tank, providing support for many aspects of agricultural and food production. The tour was led by CLiCK President and co-founder Phoebe Godfrey.
“We are focused on sustainability and on helping people become aware of where their food comes from, as opposed to thinking it just pops up in the supermarket,” said Godfrey, a sociology professor at UConn who teaches courses on food, climate change, sustainability and social justice. “This is a perfect place to create a food hub for the entire area.”
CliCK members were participants in the 2014 Food Justice in Windham through Community Partnerships project of the Office of Public Engagement.
