Get connected and visit us at the North Carolina State Fair!
This year, WellCare of North Carolina is proud to partner with the North Carolina Sweet Potato Commission at the N.C. State Fair to share information about the numerous nutritional benefits of sweet potatoes and the importance of healthy eating habits. Stop by our booth to receive your very own sweet potato from North Carolina’s own Ham Farms and learn about how sweet potatoes can contribute to a healthy diet.
The North Carolina Sweet Potato Commission is a nonprofit corporation made up of over 400 sweet potato growers along with the packers, processors and business associates that support them. The sole purpose of the commission is to increase sweet potato consumption through education, promotional activities, research and honorable horticultural practices among its producers. Thanks to the six sweet potato farmers that chartered the commission in 1961, the commission has supported its growers and maintained North Carolina as the No. 1 sweet potato producing state in the United States since 1971.
