Talk About Town: Local Food Distribution
Locally grown food is in high demand these days, but seems to be difficult to find in Pasco. Dube's Mobile Market is a new start-up distribution and sales service for small growers and food producers that just launched late last year. They are focused on growing the local food system within 50 miles of Wesley Chapel and have already developed a network of over 20 farmers and food entrepreneurs. Why is this so important?
Local food systems build community wealth and well being and have positive environmental, social, and physical benefits.
The Tampa Bay area has been lacking a viable local food distributor to get locally grown and produced foods into the hands of consumers. Dube's Mobile Market was created in response to this critical, but missing, component.
Along with the distribution aspect of Dube's, there is also a focus on educating local food producers on the business side of their operations. The goal being to help increase profits and reduce losses, ensuring that our local food system grows and thrives.
If you're a grower or a consumer looking for better access to locally grown food, you'll definitely want to make it to this TAT!
