The New Entry Food Hub is a project of New Entry Sustainable Farming Project (www.nesfp.org), a beginning farmer-training program. The Food Hub is an extension of our educational programming for new farmers and is a practical training platform and curricula to educate producers on all aspects of commercial direct market and wholesale readiness. The Food Hub embodies a unique relationship between beginning farmer producers and consumers, which benefits consumers, small-scale limited-resource farmers, local communities and the environment. New Entry Sustainable Farming Project is a fiscally sponsored project of TSNE MissionWorks (www.tsne.org).
The Food Hub Manager will manage all activities associated with a multi-farmer Food Hub, including marketing, fundraising, managing distribution logistics, and serving as an extension of New Entry’s Farmer Training Program to lead the Food Hub in maintaining an excellent reputation for high quality, locally grown products, professional customer service, and consumer engagement in the local food system. The Food Hub provides market readiness training and technical assistance to new and beginning farmers who are the main suppliers of the Food Hub. The Food Hub distributes fresh, locally grown produce to over a dozen distribution points around the greater Boston area through a CSA program, a low-income food access program, and an institutional market program.
