“Food hubs are interventions evolving and proliferating throughout North America and Europe, creating new models of food access and distribution.” University of Melbourne
Food hubs are happening all over the world. Closer to home, the Victorian government have funded the research and development of the Food Hub in Casey, with interest growing in other regions of the country.
We want to be the first community owned food hub in Australia. Here are some of our favourite examples from around the world.
THE REDD ON SALMON STREET, PORTLAND
The Redd on Salmon Street is an Ecotrust development located in the heart of Portland’s historic Central Eastside designed to support local food enterprises, connect chefs, foodservice directors and entrepreneurs to independent farmers, ranchers and fishermen in the region, and help scale a robust, regional food economy across the Pacific Northwest.
LOCAL FOOD HUB, VIRGINIA
Local Food Hub’s mission is to partner with Virginia farmers to increase community access to local food. We provide the support services, infrastructure, and market opportunities that connect people with food grown close to home.
