IATP Food and Society Fellow Deborah Kane and the Portland-based nonprofit Ecotrust recently launched FoodHub, an interactive online tool that pairs regional food buyers and sellers. This innovative social media platform is quickly getting online buzz. In a recent interview in the Oregonian, Kane mentions that some call it "the Facebook of local food, or the Match.com for food buyers and food sellers."
FoodHub currently focuses on solely on the Pacific Northwest. However, the site was built using open-source technology, so over the next year, there may be opportunities to adapt this model for other regions.
