To Hub or Not to Hub?
This session will help organizations and communities better understand the Ontario food hub sector as a whole, and the preparation work that is required to plan and implement a successful food hub. For the first time, a survey of food hubs in Ontario has been completed, and results of that survey will be presented. Then, hear a practical example about one hub’s journey from the feasibility stage to the opportunities and challenges in the first two years of operation. The session will conclude with an overview of best practices for planning food hub projects and resources available to support that stage.
