Farm to Fork: Building a Sustainable Local Food Economy in North Carolina

Farm to Fork: Building a Sustainable Local Food Economy in North Carolina In 2008 and 2009, the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) convened hundreds of food system stakeholders across the state in regional meetings, which concluded with a statewide summit, to develop “game changer” strategies to transform North Carolina’s food system. These strategies and other outcomes of the process are detailed in From Farm to Fork: A Guide to Building North Carolina’s Sustainable Local Food Economy. CEFS and its partners—including healthcare professionals, local government officials, nutritionists, anti-hunger groups, faith-based organizations, economic developers, funders, entrepreneurs, youth-based organizations, retailers, consumers and other academic institutions—have accomplished most of these “game changers,” and others are underway. Accomplishments include the establishment of the Sustainable Local Foods Advisory Council and the development of the NC 10% Campaign.
