2 and will run through Oct. 17; however, donors can provide monetary support any time. While the goal is $50,000, the campaign has raised only $4,000 so far, said Cullen Naumoff, director of sustainable enterprise for the Oberlin Project. We are still working on our goal, and we want to reach out to the region-at-large, Naumoff said, noting all donations are tax-deductible. The plan is to source agriculture products from farmers in the area to serve as a single point of access for wholesale customers, keeping both food and money within the region, Naumoff said. Northeast Ohios food-value chain is well developed with the exception of an efficient way to get high volumes of local food into local mouths, said Heather Adelman, assistant director to the Oberlin Project. The Oberlin Food Hub will increase access of local food to wholesale buyers, food pantries and school systems alike. The dollars that are raised through the crowdfunding campaign will be leveraged crowdfunding with significant investments already made into the Hub that support operations and purchase of incubator kitchen equipment.
