We believe that access to nutritious meals is a human right. Did you know that over 35,0000 of your neighbors in Buncombe County are food insecure. This makes them disproportionately prone to illness such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Together we can do something about it.
When it comes to child development not having enough healthy food is devastating on physical and mental health.
Effects on school aged children include:
• Increased risk of asthma
• Increased risk of anemia
• behavioral problems
FOOD CONNECTION currently connects meals to the children and families at Verner Center fo Early Learning, YTL / Youth Transformed for Life and IRL / In Real Life at Asheville Middle School
