About The North Star Food Hub
The North Star Food Hub is a regional initiative that serves farmers in Jefferson, Lewis, Oswego, and St. Lawrence counties. The hub provides a platform for local producers to sell wholesale local foods to area restaurants, grocery stores, food retailers, corner stores, schools, hospitals, and other institutions. It also operates a direct-to-consumer website delivering fresh ingredients to delivery locations within Jefferson and Lewis County.
The North Star Food Hub's Steering Committee, a non-profit organization, provides guidance and recommendations on development, implementation, and operational aspects of the Food Hub. Initial funding for North Star Food Hub steering committee was supported by the New York State Senate, granted by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, and administered by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson County. Black River Valley Natural Foods, based out of Lyons Falls in Lewis County, operates the food hub as a for-profit business under license by the non-profit steering committee.
