Farmshare Austin: On the Forefront of Growing a Resilient Local Food Economy

Austin, Texas is one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S., a hub for startups and innovation and touted for its quality of life. Yet, an estimated 18% of adults and 26% of kids in Travis County do not know where their next meal is coming from due to historical policies and practices that have undermined Black and Latinx Austinites’ economic success and inclusion for decades.

Enter Farmshare Austin, a community-led nonprofit that embodies the city’s entrepreneurial spirit in their mission to grow a healthy local food community.

Take a virtual field trip with the Farmshare team and see how they are working to build a healthy local food community.
