Community Food Hub II

The Fall 2012 Rutgers Bloustein Community Development Studio worked with Elijah’s Promise, the New Brunswick Food Alliance, and New Jersey Community Capital to think about how they might build on New Jersey’s existing farming and community development infrastructure to create a community food hub. To do this, the team 1) explored how community food hubs work, 2) mapped NJ’s farming landscape and the direct markets farmers use to get their food to consumers, and 3) identified already existing community food hub functions in NJ and considered how the NB Food Alliance could build on these elements.
