Bill Dunlap talks with Jan Leitschuh and Fenton Wilkinson, co-founders of Sandhills Farm to Table Cooperative, about the origins of this unique community enterprise, how it is helping improve the health of local residents and the economic health of local farmers by connecting them directly. SF2T offers subscriptions of weekly boxes of 7 to 9 fruits and vegetables from Moore and contiguous Counties at their peak freshness, as well as jams, baked goods, honey and other local food products through their on-line store.

Also discussed is how SF2T economically benefits local schools and churches, and SF2T’s new Workplace Wellness program which improves not only employee health, but also employers’ profitability and the local economy by buying from local farmers.
