Irrigating the Food Desert

Even though Hudson is celebrated on the website Serious Eats as a destination for some truly remarkable food, the USDA considers Hudson a "food desert" because there's not a supermarket within our borders. The Acres Co-op Market initiative is determined to change that. 

There's a second listening meeting and forum about the co-op scheduled for Tuesday, June 28, at 6:30 p.m., in the Fellowship Hall of the First Presbyterian Church, but for those who want to be part of the effort to make a food co-op in Hudson a reality--to serve on a committee, to strategize, to formulate plans, to offer their expertise, energy, and passion--there's a work session tomorrow morning--Saturday, June 25--at 9 a.m., at 757 Columbia Street, at the corner of Columbia and Eighth streets.
