Alaska Food Hub is nearing completion of its seventh year of operation. It has weathered some
extreme circumstances, even thrived in them. We have proved, and continue to prove, that our
systems work, our service keeps our communities safe, our software capabilities allow us to innovate, and
we sell and provide fresh, healthy, local food. When you think of the state of the world and what we are
going through: pandemic, war, revolution, inflation, supply chain shortages and many others… It seems
as though our global economy (and our personal pocketbook) is begging us to figure something else out.
Like the growers and producers, who are adapting and facing the challenges to a noticeably changing
climate, our food systems must also look for opportunities to invest in smart, local solutions. We support, vision with, and want our dollars to go to gardeners who have a bumper crop, or are growing more than they need, and Alaska Food Hub wants established and new farmers to be able to count on our service as a viable sale avenue to incorporate into their business plan. Similar to planting a seed in hopes of watching it grow, the Alaska Food Hub’s foundation is hardy enough to survive, capable of weathering challenging events, and with a little nurturing and innovation, will support customers and communities for years to come.
