Bull City Cool Food Hub

Community Development

Our Bull City Cool Food Hub is located in Durham, NC, known as Bull City. The hub was both a community development project and an entrepreneurial venture that celebrated its grand opening in September 2015.

Today Bull City Cool is a shared cool, cold and dry storage warehouse — as well as office space — where nonprofits and for-profits aggregate and distribute local farmers’ fresh food. Our goal is to strengthen Durham’s local food ecosystem by providing space and connections that benefit local farmers, food businesses and hunger-relief nonprofits.

Federal funds for this project were awarded under the Local Food Promotion Program of the Agricultural Marketing Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture.
