Geographic Coverage:South Central Illinois
Abstract:The goal of this project is to determine how a food hub facility and its associated services could support the work of small and mid-sized farmers and value-added producers in South Central Illinois. A food hub is being considered as a regional economic development strategy that will re-invigorate agriculture and associated industries in the region. The inability of small farmers to access markets is an obstacle that food hubs can address by creating intermediary structures and networks to connect small-scale producers with consistent and dependable markets.
