How Hubs Work Neighborhood Food Hubs make donating garden produce easy! A volunteer Hub Holder hosts a cooler on their front porch one day a week, which will serve as the drop-off location for produce. The Hub Team transfers produce from the Hub to FDN for redistribution to food pantries, other local meal programs, and individuals. The 2013 pilot project will run from July 15 – Oct. 1.
- Improves community access to fresh food.
