About the Event
The Baltimore Food Hub project is a $23.5 million historic renovation project situated on a 3.5-acre campus that was once the city’s Eastern Pumping Station. It will create dozens of jobs in Baltimore’s Broadway East community, bring new life to a brownfield site in a disinvested urban area, and provide opportunities for microenterprise, workforce development, education, and economic opportunity. The campus will include teaching and commercial production kitchens, space for food manufacturing, job training, an urban farming operation and an all-season market. By co-locating food businesses on a single campus, it plants a new economic engine in East Baltimore, providing jobs and healthy food access while restoring beautiful gateways into Baltimore City.
