My goal is to create Local Table's Farm to Plate, an online local food sourcing network that will connect Tennessee farmers directly to chefs, schools, hospitals and other institutions. This food hub is to connect the grower and wholesale buyer to create a healthier and more sustainable local food system. The logistics for sourcing local food can be cumbersome and difficult for both farmers and chefs and this website will make the process simpler for each to connect with the other. It will help get fresh, healthy local food into our local food system - by bypassing the need for our food to travel long distances while losing both nutritional value and taste.
I would like to get this up and running for fall harvest, so would like to get the funds within the next 30 days.
