In North Carolina, too many families lack access to food. Furthermore, the food that is accessible often lacks significant nutritional benefits.
We at Carolina Farm Trust firmly believe that our current food system is at a breaking point and is no longer reliable. We also believe that food is a human right. Accessing healthy food should not depend on race, sexual orientation, country of origin, or socioeconomic status.
Food access is a state, region, and community issue that affects us all, and it is going to take intentional, collaborative work to make sure that everyone has access to sufficient, nutritious food. Together, we need to make our food local again.
