Food Council Tools

Resources, Tools, and Partners to Support the Work of Local Food Councils

The North Carolina Local Food Council (NCLFC) is proud to be a part of a growing network of food councils across North Carolina. The NCLFC is one of more than 35 food councils across the state and one of nearly 300 local food councils across the country.

As a state-level food council consisting of many key actors in the local food movement, we want to share resources, tools and potential partners to support the work of local food councils.
