14,900 Pounds of Produce Donated to Local People in Need!
In partnership with Duke Health System and NC DHHS, Farmer Foodshare helped to acquire, assemble and distribute Covid-19 Food Boxes.
The impact of Covid-19 continues to cause issues with food insecurity throughout the Triangle and Nation. A collaboration between Duke Health System, NC DHHS and Farmer Foodshare made a tremendous impact serving over 539 households over a three and a half month period.
Private/ Public partnerships like this make an immediate local impact for families in our community. Farmer Foodshare is proud to be involved in such a great program. Craig Lloyd – Executive Director for Farmer Foodshare
Not only did the program help bring food to those families in need, it also helped to support local small farmers in our area. Income to local farmers alone brought in well over $22,000 during the campaign.
