Tahoe Food Hub is a non-profit organization that is building a regional food system in North Lake Tahoe by taking advantage of its close proximity to year-round food production.
Tahoe Food Hub will increase the availability of nutritious, ecologically grown food by connecting small-scale, regional, food producers with new markets such as restaurants, schools and hospitals. Tahoe Food Hub is committed to improving food security not only by sourcing food regionally but also exploring ways to grow food locally using 4-season growing methods.
OPENING SUMMER/FALL 2013!
Our Guiding Principles:
1. Promote regionally produced and sustainably grown foods in the North Lake Tahoe community.
2. create new markets for small-scale farmers, ranchers and specialty food businesses.
3, Increase awareness about the economics of food and the importance of local food.
4. Teach our children and community about 4-season growing methods to grow their own food.
5. Ensure equal access to local, healthy food for low-income families and individuals.
