Local Food Connection

Farmers Produce. Chefs Create. We Connect.

What Chefs Want’s Local Food Connection program is the foremost distribution solution for those who want to know where their food comes from – and to share the stories behind it. We offer a platform of solutions so that our customers can choose the very best products to meet their own definitions and needs for local by state, by location, by farm type, by growing practice, or by story. We were founded as a stand-alone food hub with a mission to build long-term growth for small and mid-sized farms and artisans. We’re a resource, a solution, and a partner to those who care about building small food systems together in a way that meets the real needs of a bigger distribution world.
