Local Food Hubs Webinar

Summer has officially arrived on Grounds, now that graduation weekend is behind us -- congratulations to the class of 2011! Things are quieting down a bit around the Dining Admin office, so I am taking the opportunity to catch up on a webinar put on by the National Good Food Network that I missed last week.

This latest NGFN webinar is entitled "Food Hubs: Viable Regional Distribution Systems."

The webinar is full of interesting facts about food hubs' emergence as viable enterprises in the sustainable agriculture and food system, and features our community's very own Local Food Hub. UVa Dining is truly grateful to have access to this resource, and we are only reminded even more of our good fortune when it is advertised on a webinar available to a national audience! (Also note that right before minute 28, Kate Collier, Local Food Hub Director, names UVa Dining as being first on the list of their "top buyers" -- not a bad association for us to have.)

If you'd like to check out the webinar but don't have time to sit through the entire in-depth recording, NGFN has also made the presentation slides available for viewing via pdf.
