North Carolina is a fast-growing state and a national leader in business as well as agriculture. Meanwhile, amid these success stories, hunger persists in all areas of the state. Food insecurity, exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, affects residents from urban tech hubs to the remote areas of the mountains and coast. Resilience is a film that explores the challenge of food access in North Carolina and how everyday heroes are working to strengthen food system resilience in local communities.
In this film, viewers will learn about farmers who are working to strengthen their local food systems and hear from local leaders who are working to help their communities have better access to healthy food. The film shows the work of volunteers who strive to make sure food gets into the hands and homes of those who are in need and shares a message of hope from organizations that have found innovative ways to give residents better access to quality food.
