The Wallace Center is pleased to announce its newest effort to support the work of food hubs nationwide, Strengthening Small-Scale Sustainable Farming and Local Food Systems by Accelerating Food Hub Development.
The program, funded by the Walmart Foundation, will build on the significant work of Wallace Center’s National Good Food Network (NGFN) initiative to support food hub development and build capacity among small and mid-size farms throughout the U.S. to access regional markets, with an emphasis on targeting minority and female farmers.
The Wallace Center has released a request for applications for organizations interested in grant support as part of this new work. The application deadline is March 30, 2014. To learn more about the program and review the complete RFA process and timeline (including a technical assistance webinar for potential applicants), visit www.wallacecenter.org/strengtheninglocalfoodsystems.
