Alderson Green Grocer To TemporarilyClose And Downsize June 18, 2017Due to a steady decrease in sales, the Alderson Community Food Hub (ACFH) Board of Directors met on May 31, 2017 and voted to temporarily close and downsize the Alderson Green Grocer effective Sunday, June 18, 2017. To ensure the downsizing is orderly, the board created a transition team to manage the process and begin developing a new plan that will enable the ACFH to continue its mission of connecting everyone from producers to consumers, providing access to nutritious food, fostering community participation, and cultivating an awareness of sustainable food systems in the Greenbrier Valley. The Food Hub would like to thank everyone who has supported the Grocer up to this point. We hope to use this transition time to get feedback from our membership and greater community so that we can recreate a Grocer that will be sustainable and best aligned with the Food Hub mission.
