The Rural Life Committee brings together a variety of groups concerned with issues affecting rural North Carolina, including agricultural policy, health care, hunger, disaster recovery, contract farming, sustainability, urbanization, and the survival of family farms. Chris Liu-Beers serves as staff to this committee.
Several years ago, the Rural Life Committee realized that groups working on hunger and sustainable agriculture could work more closely – and that faith communities have a vital interest in both. The Come to the Table project was born. It’s a collaborative network of organizations seeking to broaden their approaches to these issues.
