Local Food Hub Warehouse Tour

Last week, a few of the UVa Dining chefs and I trekked out to the Local Food Hub warehouse in Ivy (a few miles west of Charlottesville and Grounds) for a tour of the space and to give the chefs an opportunity to see the Food Hub operation for themselves.  Alan Moore, Head of Sales, led the tour and answered questions about partner producers, seasonal availability, and other logistics.  Lisa Reeder, Farm Services staff member, set up a lovely apple and pear sampling spread for us to try out, and even sent us home with some goodie bags!

Dining is grateful to the Local Food Hub for the warm reception and for taking the time to show us around.  Every dollar spent with the Local Food Hub is a dollar keeping Virginia agriculture a viable economic sector.
