Providing local produce to beach visitors
In collaboration with North Carolina State University and Cooke Realty we are proud to coordinate and distribute fresh produce from our community farmers to vacationers and visitors at Sunset Beach, Ocean Isle Beach, Holden Beach, Oak Island and Bald Head Island during the summer months of June, July and August.
Vacation Vittles connects visiting beach vacationers with local food provided by farmers located in Brunswick, Columbus and Bladen Counties within North Carolina.
This program is an initiative of NC State Extension under a USDA Farmers Market Promotion Program Grant. People-first Tourism provides technical support to the project, and Cooke Realty provides marketing assistance. The Brunswick and Bladen County Extension Centers provided trainings in food safety and food handling, and Men & Women United's Youth Ambassadors coordinate the distribution of the Vacation Vittles produce bags.
We serve the residents of Bladen, Brunswick, and Columbus.
