Prepared by a team of UC Davis students for the Yolo Ag and Food Alliance, this report examines the plausibility of creating a food hub in Yolo and Solano Counties.  Researchers explored recent trends in food hubs across the country and conducted a food system assessment of the two counties.  The food system assessment tracks historical trends and data in Yolo and Solano Counties for five sector of the food system: production, processing, distribution, retail, and consumption.  By analyzing these sectors, the report provides a context to better understand the viability of a possible food hub in the region and includes exercises and recommendations to help guide the AFA through a planning process.
