Local Food Hub
Additionally, the Local Food Hub coordinates charitable food donations from citizen gardeners and farmers and delivers them to service organizations. Its website matches consumers with producers.
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.
