BENEFITING: TAHOE FOOD HUB
EVENT DATE: Jun 04, 2017
On June 4, 2017 I will run the Waddle Ranch Half Marathon in Truckee, CA for the Tahoe Food Hub. I first met Susie Sutphin in October 2016 and was blown away by her energy, enthusiasm and knowledge. Although I love visiting farmer's markets for local produce, she changed my perspective on how to go about accessing local food. The Tahoe Food Hub is a non-profit organization that is working to restore local food distribution by building a regional food system for North Lake Tahoe. It serves as a foodshed council educating the community on the environmental, economic and social health benefits of a regional food system. Food Hubs are more than just buying and selling food! They are bringing equity back into the food system so it is fair from farm to market to consumer.
