Local Food Hub Expanding Thanks to New Partnership
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - A Charlottesville nonprofit is expanding its impact beyond central Virginia, taking farm-fresh food to more families in need.
Started in 2009, LFH has helped local farmers get their fresh fruits and vegetables to Charlottesville-area eaters. The nonprofit’s Fresh Farmacy program works to bridge the gap between the sources of healthy food and those in the community that don't have access to what's fresh.
The Local Food Hub says the program is having a positive impact on people's health: For instance, it helps folks make heart-healthy decisions, like picking pineapple over pie.
