Food Security

Rolesville Food Security

In March of 2019, the Town of Rolesville Board of Commissioners endorsed Wake County’s Comprehensive Food Security Plan.   The vision of the Food Security Plan is to have a food secure Wake County, where ALL people have physical, social, and economic access to safe, nutritious, culturally appropriate, and affordable food.

Northern Community Food Security Team

The Northern Community Food Security Team (NCFST) was created to develop and launch a viable food security plan for northern Wake County that aligns with the  Capital Area Food Network (CAFN) plan. NCFST works to help the community members, food security organizations, resource experts, and other stakeholders to develop activities, policies, and partnerships that will move the county towards food security and a sustainable food future.

Vision
  • Ensure Food Access
  • Communicate and Educate
  • Develop a Sustainable Food Supply
