GOLDEN TRIANGLE LOCAL FOOD SYSTEM
The Montana Cooperative Development Center (MCDC) has been helping a group of local food advocates explore the feasibility of a food hub cooperative for the Golden Triangle that would be owned and operated by its members. This multi-stakeholder co-op could include farmers, processors, distributors, grocers, hospitals, schools and restaurants. The food hub system would support the local food supply chain by aggregating Golden Triangle farm products and distributing them to institutions, food pantries, and both wholesale and retail markets within a 150-mile radius of Great Falls.
