There are two sides to a healthy food system.
Small and mid-scale farmers, along with disadvantaged women and farmers of color are having an increasingly difficult time making a living despite their importance in healthy communities.
There is a paradox between obesity and hunger in our country. We are experiencing an epidemic of diet and weight related illnesses, while too many in or communities simply don't have enough to eat.
Volunteer run and completely self-funded, our Donation Stations operate at over 30 farmers markets across North Carolina and Virginia.
Our wholesale market was created because Donation Station recipients wanted a more reliable supply of produce at affordable prices.
Ambassadors facilitate cooking demonstrations and share simple recipe ideas to ensure people can use and enjoy the produce that is distributed.
