Black Hills Food Hub
The work of Spearfish Local led to the creation of the Black Hills Food Hub (BHFH) in the fall of 2015. Like Spearfish Local, the BHFH is a division of the BHSU Facilities Services and Sustainability Department. By delivering food directly from producers to area cafeterias, restaurants, service providers, and specialty stores, the food hub's mission is to aid in regional initiatives that broaden the availability of local foods to people of all demographics.
The BHFH at BHSU has created the opportunity for Black Hills residents and visitors to enjoy fresh local foods. BHSU provides internships for students to participate in the local food efforts working on campus and with agricultural partners.
The food hub is currently in a three-year incubation period at BHSU, with plans to become fully sustainable by 2020. As of January 2018, the food hub regularly coordinates local food deliveries from approximately two dozen producers and five cafeterias/restaurants.
