Jeff Tech receives grant for new Farm-to-Refrigerator program

REYNOLDSVILLE — A $1.1 million grant from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program has been awarded to a project at Jeff Tech in Reynoldsville.

According to State Senator Cris Dush, the money will be used at the vocational technical school to construct, equip, and furnish a new facility to house the Farm-to-Refrigerator training program.

Both secondary and adult students who are seeking to acquire skills for employment in the meat processing industry will be served by the new facility.

The Jeff Tech project intends to provide students with new, marketable skills, increase employment opportunities, and enhance the economic sustainability of family farms in Western Pennsylvania.
