It's an age-old conundrum: How do you supply all communities with Good Food – healthy, fair, affordable and green – while simultaneously ensuring that your food business will itself be sustainable?
The Wallace Center, as administrator of the Healthy Urban Food Enterprise Development (HUFED) Center, has a broad, national perspective on the most innovative market based food access work in the country.
In this webinar, we will explore three of the most promising strategies and their business models for clearing away common barriers to increasing access to fresh, healthy, regionally sourced food. Learn how mobile markets, food hubs and processing / cold chain facilities each have a crucial role in easing bottlenecks to widespread Good Food.
Taking each model in turn, we will describe the model from a national perspective, including the essential features, and some of the variety in implementation we have seen. Then a HUFED grantee will dive deep into the details of their project to illustrate one way that theory translates into practice.
