HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Nearly $50,000 in USDA Rural Development funding has been awarded to Unlimited Future, Inc. in Huntington, to promote locally grown foods.
That information is from the office of U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va.
"Sowing these federal dollars with Unlimited Future, Inc., will yield a bountiful crop for local growers, farmers, budding entrepreneurs and families," Rahall said in a prepared news release. "Next week's workshop with Unlimited Future, Inc., and its partners, The City of Huntington and Heritage Farm, can start planning how we bring fresh and healthier foods to the table and grow jobs locally.”
The USDA Rural Development funding will be used to provide support services for local food producers and markets in Cabell, Lincoln, Mason and Wayne counties. Unlimited Future, Inc. is a business incubator and resource center for the Tri-State area.
