Carolina Farm Trust providing access to fresh food

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (QC Life) - To make sure people in West Charlotte have easier access to fresh, healthy food, Carolina Farm Trust is working to open a distribution center.

It will be off of Hoskins Road, near Rozzelles Ferry Road and Interstate 85.

According to the organization, just three percent of homes in that area are within a half-mile of a full-service, chain grocery store.
