The NC 10% Campaign

The Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) is committed to building North Carolina's sustainable local food economy. Through its Farm to Fork initiative and action guide (.pdf), CEFS has energized and connected thousands of North Carolinians and hundreds of local, regional and statewide organizations that share this commitment. The NC 10% Campaign is a product of this work.

The goal of the 10% Campaign is straightforward: Encourage consumers to commit 10 percent of their existing food dollars to support local food producers, related businesses and communities. The 10% Campaign:

Why 10 percent? It is achievable for most, and meaningful for all:

We've partnered with many institutions and organizations including Charlotte-based Compass Group, the world's largest foodservice company, and North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service. These organizations are working with CEFS to develop the initial and long-term components of the campaign.

Cooperative Extension has designated regional directors and local food coordinators in all 100 counties to advance the 10% Campaign. These on-the-ground experts are joined by other community leaders, farmers, business owners, teachers and students statewide, many of whom are already working to build the state's sustainable local food economy, from farm to fork.

Make the choice. Make a difference. Make it local.
