The Wallace Center supports entrepreneurs and communities as they build a new, 21st century food system that is healthier for people, the environment, and the economy.
Findings of the 2015 National Food Hub Survey
MSU Center for Regional Food Systems has released the Findings of the 2015 National Food Hub Survey, produced in collaboration with the Wallace Center at Winrock International. This is the only study of its caliber to track nationwide data on food hubs over time.
The findings of this, the second national food hub survey, together with the 2013 National Food Hub Survey, are the beginning of a longitudinal data set that tracks what food hubs look like and what impacts they are having across the United States. Overall, the 2015 National Food Hub Survey indicates that the food hub model can be financially successful across a variety of legal structures and geographic or customer markets.
“Food hubs bring great opportunity, but they face unique challenges that will require investment and innovation to overcome,” said Dr. John Fisk, Director of the Wallace Center at Winrock International.
