The Sustainability Book Club meets every first Thursday of the month to discuss a book that sheds new light on the world of sustainable food systems.
Ever get bummed out that the Salisbury Farmers’ Market doesn’t operate January through mid-April? Winter Harvest has been helping locals get fresh local food in the winter for years.
Bread Riot partners with community agencies to promote eating locally and encouraging awareness of the importance of eating locally. We partner occasionally with The Center for the Environment at Catawba, New Sarum Brewery, and local restaurants that feature locally sourced items.
Over the past four summers, Bread Riot has partnered with RSSS to distribute produce at Summer Feed meal sites. Our program has grown, through local grants, from distributing 200 pounds of produce to 3,000 pounds of produce in the summer of 2019. This summer we distributed produce to 26 locations over 8 weeks.
Besides lunch sites, we delivered fresh produce to Meals on Wheels, Rufty Holmes Food Pantry, and The Rowan County Health Department Health Fair. We purchase our produce from 7 different farms in Rowan County and enlisted help from 16 volunteers.
