ABOUT THE WEBINAR
Join the Yolo Food Hub project team at an upcoming interactive webinar on Tuesday, April 5th from 3 PM – 4 PM. Participants will learn more about the Yolo Food Hub and the results from a recent survey, which seeks to collect specific information from growers in the region. The survey results will allow the Yolo Food Hub project partners to create a facility that is equitable, sustainable, and offers a wide range of valuable services to consumers and producers. The survey will also inform the feasibility study of the Yolo Food Hub as well as the business plan.
MORE ABOUT YOLO FOOD HUB
Yolo Food Hub is a new facility that will aggregate, process, store, and distribute farm produce grown in Yolo County and surrounding areas. Located in Esparto, Yolo Food Hub will connect small, economically disadvantaged, Veteran, and BIPOC farmers to new markets and improve the resiliency of the regional food system by strengthening local supply chains. In addition, Yolo Food Hub will expand food production and develop new market opportunities in Yolo County and the Greater Sacramento Region, while at the same time bolstering local food security, increasing employment and job training opportunities, and providing pandemic relief for farmers, consumers, and institutional buyers.

This webinar is open to the public. We strongly encourage growers, school nutrition service providers, farm bureaus, community college and universities, hospitals, and other public agency staff (cities, counties, regional agencies, special districts, etc.), elected officials, non-profit and labor organizations, community-based organizations, private consulting firms, advocacy groups, students, and individuals interested in learning about the Yolo Food Hub or the food system to attend this engaging and informative event.
