Designing Better Local Food Systems


North Carolina is the 10th hungriest state in the nation. Nearly 1 in 5 children in NC faces hunger on a regular basis. Wake County’s Capital Area Food Network brings together nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses, and local government to ensure that all residents have adequate access to healthy food.
Join ncIMPACT Initiative Director Anita Brown-Graham as she explores these challenges and collaborative solutions with expert panelists:
- Dr. Monique Bethell: Capital Area Food Network
- Abbey Piner: Center for Environmental Farming Systems at NC State University | Community Food Strategies, Project Lead
- Jamie DeMent: business owner (Coon Rock Farm & Bella Bean Organics) and author

Our Show

ncIMPACT examines issues around our state including education, jobs, healthcare, and more. Host Anita Brown-Graham and her team from the UNC School of Government listen, learn, and lead in generating conversations, and going into the communities that are tackling these problems head on. Talking to the people on the ground, Brown-Graham identifies ways in which they are positively affecting others and making changes, while exploring ways these innovative solutions can be applied in other communities across the state.

UNC-TV Public Media North Carolina partners with the UNC School of Government, with sponsorship by Civic Federal Credit Union, for this compelling series.
