This draft report is a product of a study supported by the Wallace Center and the National Good Food Network. The study explored how a set of common measures might assist food hubs and the food hub community in telling their stories and improving their practices. Common measures explored in this report include measures of: increased economic activity and market-access for small and mid-sized producers; greater food access to underserved communities; increased articulation and understanding of the impact of food hubs in achieving health-related outcomes; and investment by federal and private sources into food hub development. This report compiles research on food hubs and the selected measures, information from the 2013 National Food Hub Survey, and the input of food hubs selected by the National Good Food Network Food Hub Collaboration.
