State leaders take interest in food hubs


Communities across Michigan are in varying stages of developing regional food hubs for business incubation, local food distribution, and more. Now the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development is taking notice of this powerful undercurrent in one of the state’s largest industries.
Late last year the MDARD gathered leaders of several regional food hub efforts from across the state in Lansing. The purpose of the day-long session was to gather input on next steps the MDARD should take, along with sister agencies, such as the Michigan Economic Development Corporation, to support these local food and farm business development efforts.
            MDARD Director Keith Creagh says, “a network of long-term, sustainable food hubs can help the state reach its health and wellness goals by increasing the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.” He cites strong interest from Michigan Governor Rick Snyder who has noted the value of local agriculture development in recent addresses health and wellness and other topics. “A food hub collaborative can also create new jobs in farming, food processing and other agri-business endeavors,” Creagh says.
            For more information about the MDARD’s food hub effort, contact coordinator Jeanne Hausler at 517-373-9790, hauslerj@michigan.gov. For more information about regional food hubs in general, check out this U.S. Department of Agriculture-sponsored Web site at the National Good Food Network on the trend and examples from around the country.

  1. It's good that more and more states are taking interest in the sustainable projects focusing on food selling and food production. Finally, the authorities have seen the benefit of direct connection between the food consumers and the food producers.

  2. Eating nutritious food and maintaining a balance diet are just some of the few ways in keeping your body in shape. That's why it's important to monitor what are the foods we are eating and activities we are doing.

  3. This is a project that definitely needs to get a greater amount of support. It'll be a big boost for both the medical and agricultural industries, and ultimately will greatly benefit the general public.

  4. Most toys are educational in some respect, however the best educational toys allow a lot of interaction between the child and the toy. For instance, a wind-up toy that can only be wound up and then let go, does not encourage a great deal of interaction.http://www.careerpanth.xyz/

  5. Different people prefer different communities and it's important to find yours. Local food distribution is very popular today and it's caused by some factors. First of all you will receive all local vitamins and you don't need to by vitamins in the pharmacy. The second reason is that all these thesoundandnoise local products are cheap and seasonal. In such a way you will eat different products all over the year.

  18. I am looking for My assignment help Review admission to write admission essay. But with an increased in the demand for Services, many fake service providers have mushroomed all over the internet. There are many writing services which promise to be reliable and affordable. One such authentic service provider is Myassignmenthelp Review, So read review and take help from them and I got the best of me. But after reading edu birdie review I thought of writing this in order to make the students aware against this writing service so that they do not get trapped.

And In another uk essays review received from the student I found out that the company charges less but they compromise the work for the less amount of money.
