Food Security & Food Access

Food security comprises several different components, including food access, distribution of food, the stability of the food supply, and the use of food. Food insecurity is part of a continuum that includes hunger (food deprivation), malnutrition (deficiencies, imbalances, or excesses of nutrients), and famine. Learn about the reasons for it, the results of it, and what can be done about it.

Local & Regional Food Systems

A sustainable food system requires robust networks of local and regional food production and distribution. Learn what local food is, why it's important, and how you can support its production.

Local Food Hub - Solving the Distribution Issue

Local Food Hub has two arms: a distribution warehouse in Ivy, Virginia; the second, an educational farm in Scottsville, Virginia. The farm is certified organic with two farm managers, three apprentices and this summer, interns from Charlottesville High School who helped out at the farm three days a week. Emily explained that "many of them did not like it at first, but they get a lot out of being out on the land and seeing where their food comes from."
