Abstract

The Leopold Center funding was used to explore the feasibility of and pilot a food hub node in Dubuque County, managed remotely by the Iowa Food Hub. Funds were used to connect the Iowa Food Hub with additional Dubuque area farmers, to secure cold storage in the area, to account for travel to and from Dubuque, and to evaluate and develop the local foods market in and around Dubuque.
