Feast Down East, also known as the Southeastern North Carolina Food Systems Program (SENCFS) is a non-profit economic development project focused on creating a healthy, vibrant local food system. Its goals are increasing access to healthy foods, creating jobs and reducing poverty in our rural communities. Feast Down East helps limited-resource farmers build and sustain their farms and connects them with local markets to sell their products. Feast Down East also educates the public on the importance of buying local. UNCW is the lead agent for SENCFS. Feast Down East's Processing and Distribution Center is a USDA designated Food Hub.
