Review for Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA, Pittsboro, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My experience with RAFI-USA began as an intern, or a Food, Faith, and Justice fellow, in 2020 while I was at Duke Divinity School. Through this program, I came to know the awesome people at RAFI-USA, as well as many of the farmers and churches that they work with through their Come to the Table program. At the time, I was studying to be a pastor in the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church. My fellowship provided me with invaluable connections in the intersection of food, farming, and faith, and gave me a much-needed exposure to the non-profit world before beginning my ministry.

Now that I am serving in a rural United Methodist church of my own, I have been able to continue my work with RAFI-USA, as they are a vital partner in the work of the North Carolina Conference's Creation Care team. Even though I am no longer a fellow that is working for them, they continue to support me in my passions of creation care, faith, and farming. The partnership that I formed with RAFI-USA is one that will last for many years to come, and I am able to do the work I love due in large part to the work that they do.
