KAPA Research Recruitment Survey

The Ketchikan Agricultural Producers Association is Initiating a research study to explore the build of a food hub in Ketchikan. This hub is designed to make it easier for local producers to scale their operations into a financially viable business, if they so desire. Examples of services a hub could offer include: certified shared-use processing space (kitchen), warehousing & storage, and aggregation of products across several producers to sell to the marketplace. We need to hear from everyone who affects the food system in our community. Please help us! Click Here to Access Survey
