Feeding A Region
Premiere & Panel Discussion
Sponsored by Trane Technologies
The ‘Feeding a Region’ Premiere and Panel Discussion is the debut of Carolina Farm Trust’s
new short film, showcasing our vision to feed the entire Charlotte Metro with food from local farms.
Feeding a Region Film Description:
The time to strengthen our regional food ecosystem has arrived. Now, more than ever, the Carolinas need robust local food systems that have the ability to withstand challenges such as pandemics, natural disasters, or changes in the agricultural workforce. We need an approach that is comprehensive and collaborative. An approach that includes our partners. An approach that includes farmers, farms, markets, and consumers. ‘Feeding a Region’ depicts Carolina Farm Trust’s vision to feed the Carolinas with healthy food from local farms and the steps we will need to take, collectively, along the way.
The ‘Feeding a Region’ Premiere and Panel Discussion is the debut of Carolina Farm Trust’s new short film, showcasing our vision to feed the entire Charlotte Metro with food from local farms. Following the film, a panel of 5 local food systems leaders will discuss the following:
The challenges of current food systems.
Systemic changes needed to achieve food justice.
The importance of grounding food justice in racial equity.
The urgency of starting the work for food justice now.
The ways in which funding this work will yield a return on investment.
