DIVERSE FARMERS IN THE SPOTLIGHT
FM Staff Contributor
In North Carolina, the Black Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) Farmer pilot program took off with the support of Compass Group North America, Foodbuy and produce distributor FreshPoint. The goal? Being more intentional with produce purchases and directing more spend towards the diverse farming community. Compass chefs made it special with beautifully seasonal menu items, and thanks to the pilot program’s success, new farms are being added and the program is still growing.
