New Farm to Market Network!

The Fallon Food Hub and Desert Farming Initiative at UNR have teamed up to help growers move their fresh produce to market in west central Nevada and the surrounding region. The aim of this cost-free service is to alleviate economic impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, prevent food waste, and increase the efficiency of our regional food system in general. Two vans will be available on regularly scheduled routes from October 12 to December 4, 2020. This pilot project was made possible by grant funding from the Nevada Department of Agriculture.
