Please join us on April 4th at 6pm at Celine & Company for our second annual Chefs In Action fundraiser. Enjoy tapas from seven of our donor chefs, guest speakers, Dig Local raffle and entertainment from Abby the Spoon Lady and Chris Rodrigues, and Jr James. This event is presented by Wicked Weed Brewing!
Please join us to celebrate the launch of the Charlotte chapter of Food Connection! Town Brewing has generously offered to donate $1 of every beer sold to us, so drop-in ANYTIME between 4-10. The silent auction will begin at 5:00. Invite your friends and family (this is a child-friendly event).
Join us! 10% of our food sales from Black Mountain Ale House and $1 for every beer purchased from Black Mountain Brewing will be donated to the Black Mountain Chapter of Food Connection. Come out and meet those in making this happen and learn how you could get involved!
Food Connection has rescued and delivered well over 100,000 fresh, gourmet meals and connected them to those in need. We need your help to continue. Your support will allow us to expand our mission because we firmly believe that no fresh food should ever end up in the trash while people go hungry.
Does anyone else think it's ridiculous that fresh food continues to pollute America's landfills while people go hungry? If so, you've landed on the right site.
Food Connection collects surplus fresh meals from restaurants, caterers and institutions, and delivers them to community partners who feed those in need, in order to reduce food waste and ease the pain of immediate hunger.
Currently Food Connection is operating in Buncombe County, North Carolina, in cities including Asheville, Swannanoa and Black Mountain, and have just begun operating in Charlotte, NC.
That being said, we'd love to start a food rescue revolution in other places. Check out Brenda and Lorraine's story. If there are folks out there like these two, the revolution will begin sooner than later!
Food Connection relieves hunger while reducing waste by connecting surplus freshly prepared meals with those experiencing food insecurity.
Because this makes total sense, right?
GOT FRESH FOOD NOW? Is it enough to feed 18 people or more? Are you located in Buncombe County, NC or the Charlotte area? We need it! Click the link below and let's get started.
Your financial contributions allow us to continue, and expand our efforts to keep fresh food out of our local landfills, while feeding our neighbors in need. Because it's logical to do this.
Want to get involved? Consider helping us out with fundraising, delivering food, working events and helping us educate folks that there are alternatives to tossing out good food.
