To build a more sustainable and equitable local food system
NC is the 8th largest agricultural produce in the county, yet the 9TH MOST HUNGRY STATE. 1 in 5 children and 1 in 7 adults, in NC suffer from food insecurity and local farmers are losing $1000 a week in revenue.
To create an environment where our local farmers support the community, and our community supports our local farmers.
Bridge the gap by working with local farmers, vendors, and community organizations to provide fresh produce to our neighbors and families in need.
We are produce distributors with a twist. We work with farming neighbors to source locally grown food and help bridge the gap to sell their products to new markets that they may not have direct access to, strengthening our fragile farming economy. We also work with community partners (think schools and relief organizations) to ensure that all of our neighbors have access to healthy, local produce. That’s what we mean when we say fresh, local food. For All.
They say it takes a village and we want you to be a part of ours!
Whether it is donating, volunteering, or shopping at our local grocers it takes a village to help a community thrive. If you are ready to dig in and get your hands dirty, check out the many ways you can support Farmer Foodshare.
