This is YOUR community food hub! We have grown because YOU have voted with your fork, demanding more local food in our restaurants, schools, grocers and home kitchens. We need our community more than ever to help us make this next move! Help increase access to local, sustainably-grown food by donating to our Make the Move campaign.
Why Make the Move
Tahoe Food Hub has been working to connect and strengthen the North Lake Tahoe regional food system since 2013. We have outgrown our current location and need a larger warehouse and Farm Shop to support more local farms and increase access to healthy, fresh, sustainably-grown food for communities in the Tahoe basin.
The Fund Drive
Our goal for the online crowdfund campaign is to raise $30,000 by September 30, 2018. It will contribute to our overall Fund Drive goal of $160,000 which we will reach through the crowdfund campaign, private donations, grants and our Pitchfork & the Pan pop-up farm dinners. Funds raised will help us move into a warehouse at the Truckee-Tahoe Airport. Our biggest investment will be a 1,400sf walk-in cooler/freezer which will give us the needed capacity to efficiently distribute local food around the region. With additional space:
- We will be able to develop an online store for consumers to customize local food boxes.
- We will be able to expand our Farm Shop to a more centralized facility with more products.
- We will be able to move a larger volume of food to better serve our schools, hospitals and hunger relief agencies.
