Free! Register NowFood hubs, or regional food aggregation and coordination facilities, offer great promise for systemic social and environmental change.
There is a growing interest in food hubs as a route to alleviating food deserts, increasing small farm viability, establishing much needed infrastructure, providing fresh and low-carbon footprint food to all communities, and revitalizing local economies. But the food system is extremely complicated, social and economic goals can seem at odds, and the variety of food hubs springing up may seem dizzying.
This webinar will provide a clear illustration of the variety of models that exist, the outcomes they offer, and a sense of their viability, focusing on key elements of successful food hubs.
We will weave together the experiences of two innovative hubs (very different from one another) with the draft results of the first comprehensive US food hub study to tell this exciting story of how food hubs are a lynchpin in a regional food system.
