The Worcester Regional Food Hub is a collaborative effort of the Worcester County Food Bank and the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, made possible by the generous support of The Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts.
Designed to bolster a robust regional food system, the Food Hub fuses these partner organizations’ respective missions to increase local food access and consumption and recruit, retain, and incubate local food entrepreneurs, collectively building healthy, sustainable, and just communities.
The Worcester Regional Food Hub aims to:
- Strengthen sustainable agriculture by supporting and enhancing the production‐to‐distribution chain for local producers and small acreage farmers.
- Promote healthy eating by providing people of all incomes with access to fresh and healthy products.
- Fuel economic development through the support of emerging entrepreneurs and increased consumption of locally produced food.
