Why We Exist
In NC, there are far too many communities that have limited access to healthy and affordable food options. In 2015, 170,431 Wake County residents and 69,240 Durham County residents lived in neighborhoods with low access to grocery stores.

For some, eating healthy can seem unattainable. Social norms, classism, and racism have impacted the world of healthy living giving the impression that it is not for everyone.

Today there are over 3 million farmers in America. Of those, less than 2% are Black. Land laws, discriminatory banking practices, and other institutionalized practices of racism have impacted a once thriving network of Black farmers.
