We’re so proud to partner with the 10% Campaign — a statewide initiative led by the Center for Environmental Farming Systems and NC Cooperative Extension promoting locally grown food, farmers and the businesses and people who grow, prepare, distribute and sell food in NC. The campaign’s goal is to encourage individuals, restaurants, retailers, universities, and schools to commit 10% of their existing food dollars to locally produced foods.
As a member of The Produce Box — this is NO PROBLEM! You have so many choices for local, fresh, delicious food each week.
And did you know?
North Carolinians spend about $35 billion a year on food. If individuals spent 10% or just $1.05 per day locally, about $3.5 billion would be available in the local economy!
