Yellow Wood worked with the National Good Food Network, in partnership with the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service, Project for Public Spaces, and the National Association for Produce Market Managers, to facilitate a meeting at the Wholesale and Regional Food Hub Conference in Philadelphia. Facilitators and market managers investigated what markets across the country were already doing to promote local and regional food distribution, what additional work or services they could provide, and what collaborations and partnerships could be established to provide more services to their respective communities.
