Webinar Summary

Food hubs are often perceived as addressing injustices in U.S. food systems, particularly by increasing economic power of small- and mid-size producers and bolstering local and regional supply chains. Many food hubs report having a social mission. Although there has been a national food hub survey every two years since 2013, the survey has not shed light on the extent to which racial equity is an institutionalized priority in food hub work.

The webinar will share results from a qualitative study led by a diverse group of food system practitioners as to how U.S. based food hubs understand and operationalize engagement in racial equity work.  We will share examples of how food hubs operationalize equity within their business, and with their partners, and with the community they serve.   Authors and food hub leader discussants will also offer perspectives on the deeper questions that must be addressed to meaningfully support equity across the food system.

This webinar is sponsored by the MSU Center for Regional Food Systems in association with the Racial Equity in the Food Systems Workgroup. Funding for the Racial Equity in the System workgroup is provided in part by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.  The report upon which the webinar is based:
