We are pleased to announce that we have been awarded a USDA Local Food Promotion Program (LFPP) grant of $93,000 in order to develop a Last-Mile Aggregation and Distribution Hub in New York City.

By 2017 this hub will enable us to partner with 80 producers to deliver up to $600,000 worth of product by 2017. Our receipt of the LFPP grant will enable us to greatly expand our capacity to provide a vital link in the local food chain.
