Making a Difference in Our Community

 

LOCAL FOOD MOVEMENT



The "Grayson Grown" initiative aims to help Grayson County
businesses and farmers promote their products and services. It also
encourages citizens to support small businesses in the community by
shopping locally. This can also be done through the Online Farmers Market.

LOCAL FOOD GUIDE

The Local Food Guide is a free resource for consumers who seek
local food year-round. The guide highlights farmers markets,
restaurants, farms, businesses and more across Northeast Tennessee
and Southwest Virginia. This annual publication provides your
business with year-round promotion. The Local Food Guide is made
possible through advertising sales with 10,000-15,000 copies being
distributed each year. When you use the guide, you’re helping create
a strong local food culture.

FOOD INDEPENDENCE

A local non-profit started in April 2020 to fight hunger in Grayson
County VA. Food is collected throughout the month, packed into
boxes and distributed via a drive through distribution line on the 4th
Tuesday of every month. In extreme cases of need, boxes have been
delivered. Please click on the link below to find our more and get
involved in this great program.



Two other food pantries of interest are Hands of Grace Food Bank in
Elk Creek and the Little Free Food Pantry in Mouth of Wilson...both
working with Food Independence to feed residents in Grayson County.



Additionally, three other Little Free Food Pantries are located
throughout the county at the following churches: Independence
First United Methodist, Bridle Creek United Methodist and Flat Rock
United Methodist.
