Food hub meeting set for Columbus


Follow The Republic:


Purdue Extension offices around the state are hosting nine community sessions, including one in Columbus, aimed at determining the feasibility of local food hubs.

A pilot program is already underway in Greenfield.

The Hancock County Extension office this past year launched Hoosier Harvest Market, a food hub that partners and consumers interact with through a website, hoosierharvestmarket.com.

Via the site, farmers can post what goods they have available and community members can use it to place their orders, which are aggregated and available at pick-up locations.

The Bartholomew County Extension office is hosting the Columbus session, which is open to the public, from 10:30 a.m. to noon Sept. 4.
