Fortifying the local food pipeline…Efforts to build a facility that will house a farmer wash and storage area, a pantry warehouse distribution site, and a commercial and teaching kitchen are underway in McDowell County. Heather Yzquierdo Consulting partnering with Alan Steinbeck of 3TP Ventures are the project developers for the Foothills Food Hub.

A feasibility study was completed in March 2017, and the Project Developers need agricultural producers input about how the Hub can best serve their needs. We want a facility that you will use. We will focus on equipment and program needs for the facility. The purpose of the Hub is to increase marketing opportunities and get local food into our area.

Dinner will be served. Please RSVP to Heather Peek by email or call, 828-652-8104 by November 19.
