Mission and Purpose
The purpose of the CHE Community Food Hub is to connect local sustainable growers with consumers that will help reduce their production and marketing cost in addition to reducing the retail cost for consumers. The Hub will receive; process; and distribute foods produced directly by local farmers to consumers in a cost-effective way.
The mission of the CHE Community Food Hub is to provide consumers with foods that will work with other life changes to lengthen their lives and enhance their quality of life. Using sustainably produced foods consumers will be taught how to correct, prevent and eliminate food related chronic diseases. The Hub will also provide nutritional education on the sustainably produced foods that they sell.
CHE believes that if you “Let Local Foods Be Your Healer”, the benefit will be an enhanced quality of life.
CHE Community Food Hub is fully committed to the promotion of “Know Your Farmer – Know Your Food”
