BELLOWS FALLS—In late-September, Food Connects’s Food Hub set a new sales record: just over $11,500 in one week. All items the Food Hub sold were grown or produced in Vermont and southern New Hampshire.
The Food Hub is a program run by Food Connects, a nonprofit that started in 2013 with a mission to deliver “locally produced food as well as educational and consulting services aimed at transforming local food systems.”
The Food Hub sells fruit, vegetables, meats, dairy foods, and value-added items from 45 local farmers and producers through the Food Connects website.
After more than 40 years in operation, Community Action Brattleboro Area (CABA) has voted to officially cease operations. The funds remaining in the organization's name have been donated to Food Connects to support that organization's work cultivating farm and food connections in schools and communities in and around Windham County.....(Brattleboro Reformer)
