Program Description

In 2016, the Central Appalachian Food Corridor launched to catalyze economic opportunities in the food and agriculture sector in economically distressed communities. Connecting producers to wholesale and local retail buyers with the help of private distributors and satellite food hubs, the Corridor creates sustainable jobs in local food production and distribution in four states: WV, eastern KY, southwest VA, and northeast TN. Corridor partners build the capacity of farmers, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and nonprofits to increase production and diversify markets. The net result is more income for producers, and more sustainable food centers contributing to more vibrant communities across a multi-state region. More info here
