NORTH BOLIVAR COUNTY GOOD FOOD REVOLUTION
Building Health and Wealth in Bolivar County
The Delta Fresh Foods Initiative, in partnership with local growers, mayors, schools, and others has launched the North Bolivar County Good Food Revolution to bring economic opportunities and better health outcomes to Shelby, Mound Bayou and Winstonville through building a strong local food system. The North Bolivar County Good Food Revolution trains and engages area young people in meaningful ways including data collection, consumer education, food production, distribution and marketing.
With generous support from the Bolivar Medical Center Foundation, we are working with community stakeholders to increase food production and make more nutritious, locally grown fruits and vegetables available to more than 4,000 residents in North Bolivar County. Young people have learned valuable job skills and continue to play a strategic role in the effort to build health and wealth in their own communities.
The Assistant to the Executive Director will engage with both administrative and program duties. This position will support of the Executive Director in building a strong local food system that coordinates food production, distribution, marketing, and consumer education with both youth and adults.
The Sustainable Ag Program Director will provide technical assistance to both farmers and youth engaged in local food production, distribution, and marketing, including high tunnel food production.
