Farm to Food Bank

What is Farm to Food Bank?

Our Farm to Food Bank initiative partners our member food banks with farmers across the state to rescue and deliver perfectly healthy, but unmarketable, produce to these hungry families.

Millions of Carolinians lack sufficient nutritious, fresh food, while many farmers and packers often have surplus food on hand.

We save tens of millions of pounds of fresh produce from ending up in landfills and we use it to nourish our neighbors. Currently, we partner with over 50 Carolina farmers, offering 30+ varieties of produce to help feed the food insecure.

How Does it Work?

We can handle your donation whether it’s a bin or a whole tractor-trailer load. We can access a fleet of trucks, multiple warehouses, and commercial refrigeration to stage your donation as it makes its way to the hands of our hungry neighbors. Our goal is to fight hunger by providing more nutritious food through the agricultural surplus in North and South Carolina.

New tax laws provide opportunities for credits and deductions for farms and businesses that make charitable donations of agricultural products. Learn how your donation can become part of the solution to hunger by contacting us today.
