Food Hub Proposal in Northfield

Tuesday, April 9 at 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.               Cost:  FREE!

Throughout the country, small-scale farmers often lack the infrastructure to access larger, wholesale markets. As a result, local food systems can be limited in their ability to support local farmers and provide local produce for large portions of their communities. Food hubs, also known as regional distribution centers, are one recent popular, effective, and innovative approach to strengthening local food systems by helping to connect small-scale farmers to larger institutional markets. Food hubs are centralized organizations that aggregate and redistribute local food, while also making positive economic, social, and environmental change within a community. Can a food hub accomplish these goals in Northfield? Join Carleton College Environmental Studies seniors Sophie Daudon, Kristen Dooley, and Casey Silver to hear the results of their Northfield food hub feasibility study and learn more about the regional food system.
