About Us

Farmer Foodshare is a nonprofit organization that raises funds and donations of fresh food for those at risk for hunger or malnutrition, while building healthy community food systems and enhancing community economic development. We simply connect people who grow food with people who need food — and we try to do it in ways that are financially sustainable for everyone.

Since mid-2009 Farmer Foodshare Donation Stations have collected over 200,000 pounds of top quality food from 25+ different farmers' markets and brought it to organizations that serve the hungry and malnourished in over 8 NC counties. We are now working with farmers and other community organizations to build innovative systems that will provide a consistent supply of food at the right price to agencies and individuals who need it.
