A food hub is not a place to eat your lunch every day of the week; however, it is a great place to learn more about food and how it is grown, processed, and prepared. The Food Hub is a collaborative effort between volunteers who have met at various community meetings. They use local, seasonal, and organic ingredients whenever possible.
Another way Fresh Food Hub differs from other settings is in its focus on building community. These hubs hope to create awareness of farmers’ markets and the fresh food movement in an area.
Hosting a healthy food hub where you can talk to local farmers about what they’re doing to improve their products and how you can help by growing your own. The popularity of these food hubs is such that the community makes frequent attempts to establish a permanent hub to promote fresh food consumption.
