Our Intiatives

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Food Policy Council is achieving more with our initiatives than ever before, and we are very proud of the progress we continue to make. Below are some of our most recent projects. Learn more about what we do, who we help, and how we work every day to create a lasting impact.

Fruit Market

North Meck Community Farmer's Market

The North Meck Community Farmers Market was created as a way to promote local food producers and increase access to healthy food options in the North Mecklenburg community. The farmers market will be located at Northern Regional Recreation Center and will have unique vendors each week providing fresh produce and meat for sale.

Snap Double Bucks

SNAP users can get tokens for purchases at farmers markets that will let them double their SNAP spending at the markets, without a daily limit. SNAP users do not need to enroll for Double Bucks – just bring your EBT card to participating markets
