A non-profit organization, North Star Food Hub, Inc. (NSFH), has been created to provide oversight and direction as the food hub project moves forward. The organization is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of representatives from Jefferson, Lewis, St. Lawrence, and Oswego Counties. As an integral part of its work, NSFH Inc., will provide technical assistance and training to support the North Star Food Hub and local producers grow, and be sustainable. In addition, the formation of an agricultural business entity to carry out the marketing and sales function of the food hub is underway. The graphic seen above provides a visual concept of the relationship between NSFH Inc., the new agricultural business entity, and participating producers. Working together, the two organizations will collaborate closely to bring a positive and profound change to strengthen our local food system through a food hub in the North Country.
