Empowering change-makers and reshaping our local food landscape

At the core of our mission is an unwavering dedication to fostering dialogue, forging connections, and driving action in our local food system. Through our initiatives we aim to create a community where access to nutritious food is equitable and where everyone is empowered to make healthy choices. Join us in our commitment to building a healthier, more vibrant future for Charlotte Mecklenburg, fostering an equitable and sustainable food system for all!  

Our Initiatives

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

North Meck Community Farmers 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.

State of The Plate

The State of the Plate assessment happens every 5 years, and is a chance to take stock of the local food system. In the past, we have used our State of the Plate assessments to advocate for mobile market funding and policies that support them, to bring FoodCorps to Charlotte to help schools educate children around healthy food, to ask for SNAP Double Bucks, and a variety of other policy and project priorities.
