Help Create and Sustain Thriving Food Systems

Rural access to fresh, healthy food is slipping away, as is rural agricultural communities’ ability to raise those foods. With your help, we are working to change that!

TRACTOR serves as a unique connector across the local food chain, creating economic opportunities and working to ensure that all community members have equitable access to local and healthy food. Our programs reach over 20,000 food insecure individuals, connecting them with over a hundred under-resourced WNC farmers. As food costs rise and the global supply chain continues to break, it’s never been more critical to secure adaptable, rural food infrastructure. Many of you likely remember that through some of the toughest times in this country, it was our rural farms that provided many of our most basic human needs. 


Monthly gifts and one-time in-kind donations make our work possible. A donation, whether $10 or $10,000, goes a long way in presenting the value of this organization to our community.  We also look to community members for more than money. We could not have this impact without the many farmers and folks in TRACTOR’s network who share their valuable skills, time, and labor. In rural communities, word-of-mouth reputations are still the fastest technology. When you take the time to learn about, and engage others in our work, you are helping to grow more robust food futures in these mountains.


Thank you for hearing us and for your support if you’re able to contribute. If you are unable to make a donation, one key way you can help is to pass this message along with the people you know.
