As single points of sale for multiple local products, “food hubs,” are an important part of a strong local food economy because they allow large purchasers such as restaurants or institutions to get all their local food through one entity.
The grants are available state-wide, and the deadline is May 8. The application form and all the details are at wvfoodandfarm.org.
To help interested parties through the application process, the West Virginia Food & Farm Coalition will host a day long meeting in Philippi, W.Va., on April 22.
To RSVP for the event, fill out this form and submit by April 14.
For more information about the grant, and the importance of food hubs in West Virginia, visit the West Virginia Food and Farm Coalition’s website.
