The mission of Our Neighbors Farm & Pantry is to end hunger in the communities we serve through food distribution, education, and advocacy.
Over 8000 people in Graham County live in poverty. Poverty often limits the food choices a family can make and is linked to many diet-related diseases. Our Neighbors Farm & Pantry is working to improve access to basic, healthy food. Volunteers currently distribute over 275,000 pounds of food each year, reaching over 2000 individuals.
Hundreds of school children come to the garden at Our Neighbors Farm & Pantry. They grow vegetables and fruit from seed to harvest, learn about healthy food choices, and experience the pleasure of eating fresh garden produce.
Working with partner organizations, Our Neighbors Farm & Pantry aims to reach everyone—children, families, seniors, and people with serious illness—who lives with food insecurity.
