Description

The Spot Community Food Hub is a network supporting food sovereignty and food security initiatives (community groups, not for profit projects, co-ops, and social enterprises) in Kings County. Our role is still being defined by the community. Broadly speaking, it will include initiatives that connect, grow, support, and strengthen our local food system and the health of our community.
