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.
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.
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.
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.
April 17, 2020: Our gratitude to Celine and Company for preparing 200 meals for us through financial contributions through Food Connection's website. Thank you to ALL of our supporters who have made this possible!
