Food Hub organizations have great potential to increase sales for local farmers, increase food access in underserved areas, and improve the sustainability of the food system. Our team researched food hubs, food access issues, and the current food system to gain insight into the viability of a food hub performing these functions in Worcester. In order to help answer these questions our team carefully studied the relationships food hubs have within a food system. Our team generated a list of key questions that need to be addressed when considering starting a food hub.
