NC 10% CampaignRaleigh, NC nc10percent.com
The NC 10% Campaign is a collaborative statewide initiative led by the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) and North Carolina Cooperative Extension. The campaign promotes locally grown and caught food, farmers and fishers, as well as the businesses and people who prepare, distribute, and sell food grown in North Carolina. It is estimated that North Carolina residents spend over $35 billion on food each year. If 10% of those purchases were from NC farms, $3.5 billion would stay within North Carolina’s statewide economy.
