Creating Thriving Rural Communities

Addressing three critical issues that plague our rural NC
communities—poverty, food insecurity, and chronic diseases.

Our MISSION

GRRO's mission is to foster a positive impact on our community through the implementation of programs and projects that focus on four key areas. Firstly, we aim to revitalize rural communities by promoting micro-market farming and food economics, thereby creating avenues for economic development amidst persistent poverty. Secondly, we strive to provide access to fresh, healthy foods to vulnerable members of the community. Lastly, we aim to support healthcare providers in their efforts to reduce chronic diseases by promoting better access to fresh foods.
