Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Catawba Farm and Food Coalition facilitates and supports the development of a secure and sustainable food system in Chester, Fairfield, Lancaster, Union, York Counties and the Catawba Indian Nation.
We envision a secure and sustainable food system as one in which our farms are economically viable, our agricultural lands are supporting a much larger percentage of the Catawba Region’s food needs, and all members of our region have access to fresh local foods.
We believe that a strong local food system contributes to the health of our entire region and we work to facilitate greater understanding of the social, economic, and environmental impacts of our food choices.
CFFC promotes the purchase of locally grown and produced foods:
- to keep valuable agricultural land in production
- to ensure the economic viability of farms
- to benefit public and environmental health
- to strengthen our regional economy
