We focus on many levels of food security because we see food system development as an opportunity that crosses many sectors. Our approach to food security in the region:
Gardening resource distribution and technical assistance
Agricultural curriculum and hands-on training
High tunnel infrastructure and protected growing systems
Economic development and beginning farmer assistance
We partner with communities in 6 states throughout central Appalachia to combat food insecurity and malnutrition. Our partners have worked directly with more than 5,300 families to produce more than 3 million pounds of healthy, organic produce.
