Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF), as part of a federal grant, is working with the Central Valley Community Foundation and several other partners to evaluate an opportunity for a new community food hub or aggregation center in Fresno. A food hub can offer some unique opportunities, particularly for smaller specialty crop growers, to access new markets and is not meant to replace current market channels.
CAFF would love to hear from farmers and buyers; please respond via the following survey links:
CAFF has a few modest prizes to encourage participation from potential buyers and farmers.
Please complete the survey by the deadline of Feb 28.
