The Amagansett Food Institute's mission is to support, promote, and advocate for the farmers, vintners, fishermen, and other local food producers and providers on the eastern end of New York's Long Island. We work closely with AFI to further our shared vision of a regional revival where all farms, docks and food businesses are thriving and supported by an engaged community whose members understand and value the unique benefits of locally sourced food as being critical components to good health and well-being.
The Alliance’s mission is to restore and enhance an enduring marine system supporting a healthy diversity and an abundance of marine life and human uses. Dock to Dish proudly serves on the board of NAMA's Fish Locally Collaborative Assembly, advancing our shared commitment to rebuild a healthy ocean and pay attention to the fishers who are doing it right. Together we cultivate relationships with those who are fishing at an appropriate scale--one that the ecology can handle--using traditional low-impact harvest methods.
A nonprofit farm that passionately believes in connecting eaters, especially children, to their food and the farmers who grow it, Amber Waves looks to build a foundation for lifelong commitment to land stewardship and empowered healthful eating. They have established a Farm to Fork Curriculum in which children learn about nutrition, organic farming, and grain growing. In addition to working with school children, Amber Waves serves the general public through interactive farm tours and opportunities for volunteering. Our friends at Amber Waves continue to be a guiding source of inspiration towards the development of Dock to Dish.
New York Sea Grant (NYSG), a cooperative program of Cornell University and the State University of New York is part of a nationwide network administered through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Dock to Dish has partnered with NOAA under the direct guidance of marine fisheries specialist Antoinette Clementson. Together we work towards environmental stewardship, long-term economic development and responsible use of America’s coastal resources—the heart of Sea Grant’s mission, as well as our own.
Dock to Dish works closely with the NY State Department of Agriculture and Markets and has taken The Pride of New York Pledge. This is an important new component of Governor Coumo's Taste of New York Program and is designed to encourage the state's culinary industry to take advantage of the abundant food and beverage products the state has to offer. Dock to Dish proudly provides our members with 100% locally sourced, sustainable seafood that is landed exclusively in the NY State ports of Shinnecock and Montauk.
