Asheville / Food Connection Headquarters

Did you know that 1 in 4 children in Asheville are food insecure? And that Asheville continues to be on the "top 10 places to visit if you're a foodie." Help us keep Asheville's gourmet food out of the trash and connect it to those in need. Your financial support allows us to expand our efforts.

Black Mountain / Swannanoa

Black Mountain is home to many popular conference centers that bustle with visitors from all over the country. The fresh food generated from these institutions does not belong in the trash when 1 in 4 children are food insecure. Please support our efforts of connecting the dots and feeding those in need.
