Lisa Cownie / KEYC News: Now there is really no excuse not to eat your vegetables. The MVAC Food Hub in Mankato cleans and preps the veggies for you, all you have to do is pick them up each week. Even better, they all come from local producers.

The MVAC Food Hub in Mankato is a nonprofit, wholesale local foods distributor that will wash, package and resell to local consumers looking to add fresh fruits and veggies to their diet.

Manager Joe Domeier says, “We expose them to vegetables they may not normally try. If it is in the bag, they try it and often times find they like it.”
