Growing and Funding Equitable Food Hubs: A Strategy for Improving Access to Healthy Food

August 14, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Food hubs have gained momentum as an innovative retail strategy to expand healthy food access in low-income communities by creating direct linkages between food growers and producers to consumers.

This webinar will explore the experiences of three organizations involved in the work of creating equitable food hubs in California, North Carolina, and the Delaware Valley region. Speakers will discuss lessons learned, strategies for success, resources, and important considerations for establishing an equitable food hub in your community.

Presenters will highlight how their food hub operations are creating a more equitable and inclusive food system that values not only healthy food access, but also quality jobs, local economic growth, small business development, and sustainable agriculture and farmers.

Featured Speakers:

Allison Hagey, Associate Director, PolicyLink (Moderator)
Steve Saltzman, Healthy Food Systems Loan Officer, Self-Help
Linden Thayer, Public Health Nutrition Consultant, Self-Help
Haile Johnston, Co-Founder and Co-Director, Common Market Philadelphia
