Druid has been name a “Top 5 Pre-Launch Start-Up”

 

This recognition comes from Collective Hustle.

Here at Druid we are working on a growing system that will leverage technology to grow better, healthier crops year- round, no matter the conditions. With one of these systems in place in every city, we have the ability to bring fresh, local, organic crops to every area, especially areas that have massive amounts of food insecurity.

According to the USDA, food insecurity in North Carolina is higher than the national average; in every state that surrounds us the number is near or below that national average. (source: https://www.wfae.org/post/wfaeats-why-are-people-hungry-charlotte )

What is food insecurity? Food insecurity is defined as a lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life for all household members, and limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods.
