The NC 10% Campaign is a collaborative statewide initiative led by the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) and North Carolina Cooperative Extension promoting locally-grown/caught food, farmers and fishers, as well as the businesses and people who prepare, distribute, and sell food grown in North Carolina. The NC 10% Campaign encourages NC individuals, businesses, organizations, and institutions to spend at least 10% of their food dollars on NC-grown and caught foods. It is estimated that North Carolinians spend over $35 billion on food each year. If 10% of those purchases were from NC farms, $3.5 billion would stay within North Carolina’s statewide economy.

The Campaign was started in July 2010 with the aim of creating demand for local foods, giving an attainable goal of 10% locally-grown/raised/caught, & stimulating economic opportunities for NC farmers & fisheries through the following approaches:

  • partner promotion via interactive local foods map & multi-media strategies
  • outreach and education via food system sector programming & community events
  • producer/buyer networking and value-chain development
  • online local foods data tracking dashboard
