"I like these sweet potatoes more than macaroni!” — Burton Elementary Student
Each week, Farmer Foodshare provides Durham Public Schools with fresh, NC-grown food for their cafeterias. Nearly 13,000 elementary students in 20 high-need schools also take part in taste tests - for many, it’s the first time they’re tasting sweet potatoes, collard greens, kale, and more.
Your gift today will provide fresh food
to more people in need.
With your support…
We will expand our nutrition education efforts in public schools.
Sometimes we’re teaching kids to prepare simple recipes using fresh food. Other days, kids are sampling a dish featuring local vegetables that will be offered in the school cafeteria.
We will reach more customers through our Wholesale Market.
We're delivering to public schools, groceries, universities, nonprofits, and more. Creating demand for North Carolina produce enables our local farmers to grow with confidence, knowing they can sell what they produce.
