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. 

Donation stations

Volunteer run and completely self-funded, our Donation Stations operate at over 30 farmers markets across North Carolina and Virginia.
