WELCOME TO THE FRONTIER FOOD HUB!
The Frontier Food Hub is a program of The National Center for Frontier Communities a 501 (c) 3 non-profit headquartered in Silver City, New Mexico.
The Hub was developed out of several years of Food Policy Council meetings with regional experts, on the ground, data driven research, input from growers, buyers, food pantries, schools and other stakeholders in the region as a comprehensive, market driven solution to rampant disconnection and under investment in the local food system.
