Greater High Point Food Alliance

Helping the community end food insecurity sustainably

The Greater High Point Food Alliance was formed after a series of articles on food insecurity in 2014 published by the High Point Enterprise. These articles led a group of concerned citizens to organize a Food Summit in High Point to discuss these issues within our community. That food summit led to 90 day plans, one year goals, and the formation of the Greater High Point Food Alliance under the umbrella of the United Way of Greater High Point. As our vision and mission grew, we became a 501c3 in 2019.
The Greater High Point Food Alliance strives to coordinate and improve the effectiveness of entities in Greater High Point focused on alleviating hunger by creating and executing citywide and neighborhood-focused initiatives to develop more just and sustainable food systems. We work to build community relationships that lead to collaborative work within the community in efforts to alleviate food insecurity.
The Greater High Point Food Alliance provides a free High Point Food Finder app for both iphones and androids. Simply scan the  QR code below or search for High Point Food Finder —the app provides key information for those looking for food-related assistance in the Greater High Point area for students, adults and seniors.
