Local Food Hub
Additionally, the Local Food Hub matches consumers with producers. The group also works with area schools to educate students about the benefits of locally-produced food. 
An official with the U.S. Department of Agriculture visited the food hub in April 2016. 
Initial funding was provided by the Nelson County Economic Development Authority, the Piedmont Environmental Council, Coran Capshaw, John Grisham (Oakwood Foundation), Bama Works Fund, and the Blue Moon Fund.
