Food Connection eases hunger, reduces waste and supports our local food industry by redistributing surplus prepared food and purchasing meals from chefs to serve our neighbors in need.
We are incredibly grateful to ALL of our Food Donor Partners who go the extra mile to pack up their leftovers and call Food Connection. We've started quite the revolution in Asheville and Buncombe County. We're ready to take this show on the road and expand. Please consider going on this journey with us by making a contribution.
The Harrah’s Cherokee Center – Asheville is proud to welcome Rock4Hunger AVL featuring Cold, Hoobastank, and Filter. A portion of proceeds from this event will go to benefit Food Connection! The FC crew will be there rocking out to At the turn of the century, Cold unveiled the seminal 13 Ways To Bleed On Stage, which went gold and yielded hits such as “Just Got Wicked,” “No One,” and “End of the World.” The 2003 follow-up, Year of the Spider, marked their highest chart position, bowing at #3 on the Billboard Top 200, receiving a gold certification, and spawning the smash “Stupid Girl” accompanied by Rivers Cuomo of Weezer.
Food Connection distributes complimentary heat and serve meals every Saturday at 11am. ALL are welcome. No questions asked. Meals include a meat, vegetable and starch. This distribution has been made possible through grants from The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina, the Swannanoa Valley Christian Ministries Hunger Walk, The WNC Bridge Foundation, The Black Mountain Swannanoa Valley Endowment Fund and an anonymous donor.
