The Farm Store is temporarily closed.

The Farm Team staff has made the difficult, but necessary decision to temporarily close our store operations through Wednesday, February 3, 2021 due to contact with COVID-19. The contact was outdoors with appropriate PPE (masks and gloves), but we still want to proceed with caution.

 

While our team members remain in good health, we want to proactively prioritize the health of our customers, volunteers and staff. Thank you for your understanding and well wishes. We look forward to resuming our abbreviated schedule as soon as it’s safe to do so.

South Carolina Poverty Rate - 18.73%

South Carolina Median Household Income - $47,701

Food Apartheid Areas

Chicora/Cherokee

North Charleston

Chicora/ Cherokee Median Household Income - $22,742

The Farm serves Chicora/Cherokee, one of eleven neighborhoods experiencing food apartheid in the city of North Charleston.

Disinvestment has created underserved spaces that lack:

  • traditional grocery stores

  • quality jobs

  • affordable housing

 

Additionally, the southern end of the city:

  • is overrun with hazardous industrial zones

  • suffers from the highest eviction rate in the US.

 

We hire from the community and pay our employees livable wages.

Youth Intern Neighbor Pay

Families in disinvested communities always had it rough, but due to COVID-19, our neighbors are really going through it. Youth Intern Neighbor Pay gives us the opportunity to keep more of our donations and other revenue, in North Charleston households. The other beautiful thing about internships at FFF is that students will be immersed in the benefits of food justice.
