Are you seeking funding for your new or existing food hub? The Wallace Center at Winrock International is requesting applications for a new Food Hub Development Grant Program. The Wallace Center will fund Food Hub Development grants as part of their Strengthening Small-Scale Sustainable Farming and Local Food Systems by Accelerating Food Hub Development Program. The grant program will build on the significant work of Wallace’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 additional intention on building capacity among minority and female farmers.
The Wallace Center has released a Request for Applications (RFA) for food hubs interested in grant support as part of this new work. This grant program is available to both nonprofit and for-profit organizations. The application deadline is March 30, 2014.
