Our Work

Supporting North Carolina’s Local Food Economies Through Collaboration Across the State

We work collaboratively among our member organizations with a common aim: to support North Carolina’s local food economies.

As the statewide food council, North Carolina Local Food Council (NCLFC) works to support vibrant farms and fisheries, healthy people, strong communities, thriving local economies, and resilient ecosystems. We do this by providing:

  • Interaction between members to foster coordinated programs, guidance and support for N.C. local food economies
  • Communication, resources, guidance development and collaboration within local councils and between the local councils and the statewide councilFood-related policy discussions and development in formal and informal forums

NCLFC has an executive committee and three standing committees which carry out our work. Click on a committee link to learn about each of our committees, how they work with our partners, advance our mission and what resources they provide.

In 2020, our board identified new challenges facing North Carolina, before COVID-19 was in the United States. Since then, board members have formed around these issues and incorporated our COVID-19 response to these groups’ work:

  • Connecting Consumers with Producers
  • Food Recovery
  • Climate Change
