Founded as an economic development effort, Feast Down East's primary goal is to help farms in Southeastern North Carolina prosper financially. Our Resourceful Farmer Support Program offers assistance to farmers, in particular those with limited resources, through a variety of services. This includes connecting farmers to educational opportunities and technical support services, whether through Feast Down East or our statewide network of partners. We also help to promote local farms and their products through marketing and consumer education efforts. Finally, Feast Down East helps to distribute farm products through the Food Hub, which provides farmers with additional income and reduces their costs of distribution.
