NEW - Muskegon Food Hub Operation StudyFood Hub cover RS

[July 2015] - A new study looking at ways to grow Muskegon and the west Michigan lakeshore regional food system has offered recommendations for a "food hub" that brings growers and buyers together in ways that maintain the food value chain from farm to customer and can increase the amount of healthy food in communities that lack grocery stores.

This study was conducted by Marty Gerencer, principal, Morse Marketing Connections, and Evan Smith, Cherry Capital Foods, guided by a community advisory council and a host of local, state and national local foods experts.  The project was funded by Consumers Energy and U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development and administered by the Community Foundation for Muskegon County.
