Sandhills Farm to Table is a Fayetteville based organization which aims to increase local food security. Customers of the cooperative receive weekly or biweekly grocery boxes which contain locally produced foods. Their subscription fees in turn support Sandhills farmers and artisans. Weekly boxes vary in what they contain, however contents will always be locally grown and delivered to a local drop off. In 2016, the co-op took in more than $500,000 in revenue, indicating the model was beneficial for all involved.
