Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Food

Mission: Simply put, farmers come first. Our non-profit supports farmers from end-to-end, both in ingredients sourcing as well as in our outreach programming. Unfortunately, farmers are still losing their farms, and with government issues on the rise, that tragedy is in grave danger of accelerating. USDA farm services offices are closed as of today. Funding and grants were already stalled through the winter until February, and now there is a shutdown.

Results: So far we have managed to keep at least 75% of our sourcing direct-from-farm, locally, or regionally supportive. We still have several goals yet to reach.... ~Expanding our food programming ~Additional educational outreach for growing method diversity and farm sustainability. ~Sustainable tiers of sourcing ~Community outreach programming: helping consumers understand how to best access for themselves and utilize the fresh food grown in the community.

Target demographics: farmers, especially small minority and women-owned farms

Geographic areas served: North Carolina and across the Eastern Seabord

Programs: conferences, workshops, seminars, resources and emergency help.

Gluten Free menus options are often limited at food venues. Farmers Kitchen Catering is completely Gluten Free yet local sourced, fresh, seasonal, soul inspired, southern food. Awesome quality yet affordable pricing.
