Create Farm to Plate - local food hub

$1,855 of $8,500 goal

Raised by 33 people in 53 months

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.

Just an update of our campaign to raise money to create a local food hub for Tennessee. We've made 20% of our goal, but still have a way to go. I know it's a busy season with back to school and the end of vacations, but hope you can help us get this done. Thanks everyone!
