Executive Director, Farmer Foodshare

The Organization

POSITION ANNOUNCEMENT: Executive Director, Farmer Foodshare

LOCATED IN:  Durham, North Carolina

BACKGROUND

Farmer Foodshare approaches hunger from both sides of the problem – small farmers struggling to stay in business, and disadvantaged populations who lack access to fresh and nutritious food. This is what makes them unique! Since 2009, Farmer Foodshare has fostered cross-sector partnerships to build a local food system in which all members of our community can have access to healthy, nutritious food, and those who labor in agriculture can make a viable living.

Farmer Foodshare began as a grassroots effort at the Carrboro Farmers Market to address food waste and inequitable access to fresh, healthy food for all members of the community. Farmers, market shoppers, and those experiencing food insecurity alike began a produce donation program to collect food from shoppers and farmers for communities in need. This effort evolved into the Donation Station program, which now operates at 26 markets statewide and in 2018 contributed 51,445 pounds of fresh produce back into the community.

Over the past 10 years, Farmer Foodshare has expanded its impact. It now includes a Wholesale Market that provides local institutions a means to efficiently source produce from NC farmers that generated $636,000 in revenue for these growers in 2018; a Food Ambassador program that educates more than 8,000 students about fresh food and healthy eating habits; and Community Foodshare, which supports community organizations in creating sustainable strategies for sourcing local food. All efforts work to building a more sustainable and equitable local food system.
