Local Foods Systems Infrastructure Development - Oberlin Food Hub Warehouse Efficiency
The primary objective of this project is to increase capacity at the Oberlin
Food Hub for the warehousing, sorting, packing, processing, and distributing of local foods. The need has increased with the addition of Coronavirus-related feeding programs, particularly for “grab and go” meals for K-12 schools in Northeast Ohio. Infrastructure is a crucial missing piece of the local foods economy, and this project serves to increase capacity for many different hyper local farms as well.
