Food Hubs Report Released

The Hudson Valley Food Hubs Initiative: Research Findings and Recommendations has just been released. The report explores escalating distribution of local foods, supporting farm economies and strengthening Hudson Valley regional food systems and communities through food hubs. The report is spearheaded by the Local Economies Project with a research team led by Sarah Brannen and Columbia University’s Urban Design Lab. “Expanding local food distribution capacity is critical to farm products into institutions and expanding sales for farmers”, said David Haight, New York State Director for American Farmland Trust.  “This report provides important insights into changes needed in the Hudson Valley.”
