What is a Food Hub?

Food hubs are a crucial, but often invisible, part of the local food system. They help small farms grow by offering a combination of production, distribution, and marketing services. Some are physical spaces, some virtual online spaces, but all are concerned with connecting the dots between producers and consumers of food in local and regional food systems.

Connecting Growers and Consumers

Food hubs are uniquely positioned to serve local farmers and community members.
