Regional Food Hub proposed at former Fort Lyon Correctional Facility

The Colorado Farm to School Task Force and the Bent County Development Foundation co-sponsored a regional community meeting at the former Fort Lyon Correctional Facility in Las Animas on Monday and Tuesday. The Task Force and community residents from Bent and neighboring counties discussed the value of a regional food hub at the former correctional facility that could provide locally grown produce and products to schools, hospitals and restaurants. Community residents, local farmers, school food directors and local public health representatives from Bent County and neighboring counties shared insights on the opportunities and challenges. The discussions were Livestreamed along with interviews conducted by Susan Motika.  Hear the discussions and listen to their perspectives.
