INITIATIVES & PROJECTS
Value Added Community Food System
The Value Added Community Food System enhanced Brightwood Development Corporation’s established and vertically integrated Healthy Foods Business Initiative by increasing warehouse capacity for distribution of healthy fresh and locally produced foods; established a cross-docking system to increase distribution volumes; provide technical assistance to healthy food farmers and food producers through seminars and workshops; expand the BDC Litoral (Seashore) Farmer’s Market in the Municipality of Mayaguez with a Fish Market semi-mobile unit to serve nearby subsistence fishing communities and low-income neighborhoods; and developed a greenhouse facility to educate communities and schools within the service area, in the production of healthy fresh foods.
