We have spent the last month trying to determine the best path forward for Veggie Van. Unfortunately we had to make the very difficult decision to stop offering the Veggie Van program in North Carolina. We are so happy to have been able to spend the past five years working with the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill community to provide access to fresh, locally grown produce for people of all incomes and backgrounds. It has been a pleasure working with each and every one of you and we sincerely thank you for your support and participation in this program.
The good news is our wonderful partner, Farmer Foodshare, will be taking over some of the Veggie Van program, but in a smaller capacity. Farmer Foodshare is a nonprofit organization that works with NC family farmers, specifically minority and women owned farms, to make fresh local produce available and affordable to local communities. Farmer Foodshare has been building relationships with farmers for the last several years and has been a major source of the fresh local produce that you love. Like CNP, Farmer Foodshare believes that everyone deserves access to local, fresh food, and that fighting hunger and building healthy community food systems go hand in hand. If you have interest in continuing to receive high quality, NC-grown produce, please contact Karla Capacetti, Market Manager, at Farmer Foodshare at email@example.com or 919-308-2750.
If you have any questions or concerns about this transition, please contact CNP at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you again for your support. Remember, eat local, buy local!
