DECATUR – A partnership with a food manufacturing hub coming to Brush Collage Road could spell ample educational opportunities for students at Richland Community College.

National Foodworks Services has purchased the corner Brush College School building to develop a food manufacturing and production facility with rental commercial kitchens geared toward providing an avenue for start-up businesses.

During the Richland Board of Trustees meeting Tuesday, Doug Brauer, vice president of economic development and innovative workforce solutions, said the anticipated food hub will provide an educational conduit for culinary and horticulture students, as well as open up a business development forum for students and the community.
