Food Hubs: From Farm To Table

Food Hubs: From Farm To Table

New models are emerging for getting food from farm to fork, including food hubs across D.C.

Demand for locally grown food is skyrocketing here and around the country. Along with individual customers, many grocery stores, restaurants and schools would like more local products, but farmer's markets alone can't meet that demand. Enter food hubs: bringing farm fresh products from multiple farmers to central locations in nearby cities for pickup and distribution. We discuss new thinking on getting fresh food to cities.
