About the KVCC Food Innovation Center:
Opened in 2016, the Food Innovation Center encompasses a 9,600-square- foot greenhouse, a food distribution center, and classroom space. The growing operation is used to test new and innovative methods for year-round growing; the food hub was developed to distribute fresh food from local farms to local large- scale customers, and the training center offers programs in food safety, produce handling, and production methods to help growers and food handlers innovate and succeed. The goal of the Food Innovation Center is to get more healthy fresh foods onto more plates in Southwest Michigan.
