Food hubs offer an exciting bridge between food producers and consumers, providing a mutually beneficial relationship across both ends of the food system. As defined by the National Food Hub Collaboration, “a food hub is a business or organization that actively manages the aggregation, distribution, and marketing of source-identified food products primarily from local and regional producers in order to satisfy wholesale, retail, and institutional demand.” Food hubs present an opportunity for communities to make healthy food sourcing a profitable enterprise for producers, distributors, and retailers, while simultaneously improving access to local foods.
