Access to Healthy Food Eastern North Carolina

Live United: A model for us all

Earlier this week, EdNC released its first short documentary, Live United. For us, this project started about six months ago when we first heard that some students in Hatteras and some students in Conotoe wanted to work together to create a food exchange.

Here is Alex's take on his experience working on this project. He fails to mention that he does not love bridges so the four trips to Hatteras were challenging for him. He also fails to mention that in his quest for the perfect shot, his car ended up stuck in the sand. And he failed in his own search for healthy food to eat on his many journeys to the Outer Banks.

His tireless dedication to this project is also a model for all of us.
