Legal Services Food Hub: Info Session for Farmer, Food Entrepreneurs, and Lawyers.
The Legal Services Food Hub is a pro bono legal services clearinghouse where eligible farmers, food entrepreneurs, and food system related nonprofits or community organizations can seek free legal assistance with their transactional needs. Legal staff at Conservation Law Foundation (“CLF”) manage the project, monitoring an intake hotline and email address where participants submit their requests for assistance. Once participants are screened for income eligibility, their case is then placed with an attorney in the Hub’s Attorney Network. CLF staff periodically monitor the case to ensure the representation is going well for both parties.
