Local At Your Event

Local Food Hub can help your next event be healthy, delicious, and support small farms and our local economy. We will work with you to source local products and provide marketing support to make the most of your investment.

Local Food Hub is a nonprofit organization that provides access to nutritious, locally farm sourced food for everyone. Our vision is that the knowledge and choice of local food becomes the norm, not the exception, for all segments of the community, and that small farms have a strong economic foothold in the marketplace.

We are a full service local food distributor, specializing in locally sourced fresh fruits and vegetables, plus frozen meats, cheeses, and other value-added items. All of our products are grown and harvested by small family farms in Virginia, and we ensure they have the tools and technical assistance they need to navigate the wholesale marketplace and create viable farm businesses.

By sourcing Local Food Hub products for your event, you are investing in small farms, healthy communities, and Virginia agriculture.

How to Work with Us

We work with restaurants, caterers, institutions, and more. We have existing relationships with several local catering companies, including A Pimento Catering and Harvest Moon Catering. To source Local Food Hub products for your next event, we suggest starting with the seasonality chart below to have your caterer or chef design a seasonal menu, and getting in touch with us to discuss specific product offerings and availability. Please call or email us at (434) 244-3276 or sales@localfoodhub.org to discuss how our products can fit into your menu planning.
