Purchase Chef meals for those suffering during COVID-19

In the midst of the current pandemic Food Connection is getting creative on how to get our beloved chefs back in the kitchen to prepare meals for the men, women and children who are currently the most vulnerable within our community because of this pandemic.

Introducing Food Connection's Disaster Relief Project

YOU can help feed our neighbors and get your favorite chefs back in the kitchen!

We've learned that for only $6 we can purchase the raw ingredients needed for a local chef partner to prepare a delicious, nutritious "to go" meal for our neighbors  who are struggling right now. The $6 covers not only the cost of the raw goods purchased from local farmers and U.S. Foods, but packaging for the meals, vital cleaning supplies, gloves, and gas to distribute to multiple locations throughout Buncombe County.

Get local chefs back in the kitchen!

This is an opportunity to get our local chefs back in the kitchen doing what they love AND feeding our neighbors in need. Multiple options available.

We need your support.

Thank you for supporting Food Connection's ongoing mission to reduce food waste and ease hunger in Buncombe and Madison counties.

Recently Food Connection dropped off two hundred and twenty five 12 Bones pork and veggie dinners to the seniors residing at the Housing Authority's Asheville Terrace Apartments. "Not only did our residents love the delicious food, but they felt seen and valued by the greater community," Sheila Hensley, Residential Support Specialist.
