The Anacostia Economic Development Corporation (AEDC), in partnership with the University of the District of Columbia (UDC) College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences (CAUSES) shared a commitment to build capacity in underserved neighborhoods by constructing three (3) Urban Food Hubs in Washington, DC.

  • Bertie Backus Campus – Hydroponic Facility

Two (2) additional Food Hubs are currently in the pre-development/pre-construction phase.
