The concept of a regional food hub serving Northwest Connecticut was the focus of a meeting involving local food producers and buyers Monday.
Elected officials and members of the public also attended the meeting at the Wamogo Regional High School agriculture science and technology center.
The gathering discussed an online survey of buyers and growers that is being circulated by he Northwest Hills Council of Elected Officials in partnership with the non-profit Sustainable Healthy Communities.
Bill Burgess, President of SHC, said a regional food hub would give producers easier access to buyers and would ensure that buyers have access to high-quality and fairly priced products.
