Slow Money Maine will host an event Nov. 12 at Hutchinson Center in Belfast, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. by registration-only: The Food Hub Hubbub — Fad or Future?

Once again, offerings will include engaging food system presenters, lively discussions, healthful lunch and extended networking opportunities. As defined by the National Food Hub Collaboration, “A food hub is a business or organization that actively manages the aggregation, distribution, and marketing of source-identified food products primarily from local and regional producers in order to satisfy wholesale, retail, and institutional demand.”

Keynote by Laura Edwards-Orr of Red Tomato, presentations by entrepreneurs and other project leaders and abundant networking opportunities will be available. Learn more about food system activities throughout the state, including farm enterprises, food businesses and nonprofit programs, partake of breakfast treats from various vendors and 40 North Coffee and lunch cuisine crafted by Patti Hamilton, proprietor of Barred Owl Catering.

Engage in afternoon breakout sessions which will allow participants to choose topics of interest for smaller group discussions.
