What is the Local Food Web Portal?
Many organizations and stakeholders across North Carolina and nationally are working with communities to develop and expand local food systems. The Local Food web portal was born out of a vision of the first legislated North Carolina state local food council. It was launched in 2013 by NC State Extension to provide local food systems resources and timely information to all residents and businesses across the state. The purpose of the website is to provide information and link to resources from Cooperative Extension, other N.C. organizations and state partners working on local food programming, and non-N.C. organizations when the resources are relevant in North Carolina. The portal also houses News Items and Events of North Carolina or regional interest. It is a dynamic portal and is intended to include new resources as they are developed over time.
