A Modern Food Movement presents these fireside chats for the Food and Food Tech Space. The Panel includes The Produce Project, Hungry Harvest and Ungraded Produce. The event also features local vendor sampling from Boxcarr Cheese Company, Carolina Kettle Chips and Escazu Chocolates.
There is a significant amount of attention on “Food Deserts” in urban areas around the country and the state of NC. There are a variety of factors that influence shopping decisions in low income neighborhoods such as price, transportation, participation in government aid programs like SNAP, and of course accessibility. The panelists featured today are working within their own companies to find solutions to these overarching problems. Rethinking sourcing, distribution and local partnerships are essential to improving the lives of NC residents and the greater food system. Come join them as they explore this issue and get a chance to meet like-minded people in the area.
