Working towards building an equitable and resilient food system for the health and economic welfare of our community.
Who We Are
Davidson County Local Food Network is a group composed of private citizens, representatives from the Health Department, Cooperative extension, businesses, farms governmental and non-governmental organizations who feel the need to make food a priority.
When we talk about food, we talk about access to food, food quality, food quantity, food economy, and food waste. Many factors affect the health of a community, and our food system plays a major role. Watch the video below to find out more about food councils around North Carolina.
“A food economy can completely revive your local health, local business, your economy as a whole.”
