TAHOE FOOD HUB is a 501(c)-3, non-profit organization based in Truckee, CA. We were founded in 2013 to be a hub for local, sustainably-grown food!
Our mission is to build a food system that supports regenerative and sustainable farming practices by increasing access to local food for North Lake Tahoe. By addressing local food access challenges at a systems level, we create a hub for local food. A local food system benefits diversified, family farms looking fair market opportunities while increasing access to local food for our mountain community.
We offer a variety of programs that educate our community on the important role that a local food system has on our community, economy and environment. Our Farm to Market program has a network of more than 50 farms and ranches within 150-miles of North Lake Tahoe. It is a fair-trade marketplace that makes it easy for restaurants, small grocers, resorts, schools and the public to access local food producers. Our Farm to School program teaches our next generation the importance of local food and sustainable agriculture. It connects students with where their food comes by using experiential learning at our education farm, Mountain Roots. And our Feed Your Neighbor program partners with local their hunger, relief agencies to connect local people and local farms to donate produce to those in need, ensuring equal access to the good food we source.
Support Diversified, Family Farms
By building a local food system, we provide a fair marketplace where small farms can access new markets.
Create Access to Local, Sustainable Food
By working with farmers who practice regenerative and ecological farming techniques, we can bring good healthy, nutritious food to our community.
Increase Food Security
By teaching people how to grow food locally, we can harness Tahoe's 280+ days of sunlight using 4-season growing techniques and increase our food security for an otherwise non-agricultural area.
