Northeast producers are invited to participate in a webinar that will provide an educational overview on food hubs and how they may be important to the Northeast. The webinar, hosted by Farm Credit East, ACA, will take place on Monday, December 17, at 11 a.m.

With the increasing interest in “local food,” there has been a great deal of discussion about how to connect local and regional farmers with consumers. Some of this discussion has centered on “food hubs.” This webinar will provide insight into what exactly a food hub is, how they work and how they can benefit the agriculture industry, specifically in the Northeast.

Presenters will include James Barham from the USDA, who will define what a food hub is and will use examples to illustrate what they can bring to a community, how they benefit agriculture and why they matter to the Northeast. In addition, Malini Ram Maraghan, investments managing director from Wholesome Wave, will join the webinar to discuss some specific examples of food hubs she has worked with.
