Farmer Food Share

Aiming to nurture a healthier world in which all people can access nutritious food, Farmer Food Share works to remove barriers to growing and accessing local, healthy food across North Carolina.  To do so, the Durham-based nonprofit’s core programs include:  1) Donation Stations located at roughly 40 farmer’s markets across the state at which shoppers can donate food and money; 2) a Whole Market, which buys fresh produce from farms and sells it to nonprofits serving low-wealth communities, schools, groceries, and other institutions; and 3) Food Ambassadors who provide nutrition and related education to agencies and individuals.  In 2017, the nonprofit’s work was credited with supporting over 600 local farmers and providing fresh food to 92,770 people.
