Appalachian Food Services has developed (and will continue to add to) an Always Local & Sustainable list of products served in our dining facilities.  

We are currently purchasing 20% from local sources and look to increase this percentage in future years.  We want to establish lasting and beneficial relationships with local farmers and producers, as well as help develop a stronger local economy by supporting NC businesses.

In addition to the items listed below, The Markets sell a selection of Local & Organic products.

What is "Local"

  • Appalachian Grown™ products
  • Got to Be NC / Goodness Grows in NC products
  • NC products
  • Regional products (grown and produced within 250 miles of Appalachian)
