The Alton Area Business Development Association and Liberty Bank are teaming to promote a small business incubator and a Food Hub Cooperative.  A Food Hub Cooperative brings the buyers and sellers of locally grown crops, produce, and other food products together so they can form a network and support system.  The incubator and the food hub will work together to serve the region.

Liberty Bank’s Ron Tanner says this type of network is important for both the producers and the buyers.
