The Local Food Hub is a non-profit wholesale-food-distribution hub created in 2009 to provide food from local farms to area stores, restaurants, and other food-service facilities.

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.

Funding

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[1].

In February 2009, the Albemarle Board of Supervisors declined a request for Economic Opportunity Funds[2].
