 We have completed the construction of our Food Hub facility, and purchased basic food processing equipment. However, much of the true value of this project depends upon access to additional equipment which would enable us to process a much larger range of agricultural products.

Each new product we are able to offer will create greater economic opportunity for farmers, support job creation at Challenge, and provide our community with greater access to affordable local food. With a $500,000 deficit in funding for critical value-adding equipment, we are seeking support to close that gap and maximize the great social and economic potential of our Food Hub operation.
