Break the Hunger Food Drive
Friday, June 7, 2019 from 4:30 AM to 7 PM
Carolina Furniture Concepts, 100 Airport Road, Arden, NC  28704

Join News 13, Carolina Furniture Concepts, and Two Men & A Truck to help prevent food insecurity for local children during summer break.

During the summer, food insecure students no longer receive free or reduced breakfast and/or lunch. An estimated 12,000 children in Buncombe County might not know where their next meal is coming from.

Bring non-perishable food items like canned goods, rice, pasta, breakfast cereals, and peanut butter and jelly. We also need essential items like diapers, toothpaste, and toilet paper. Food boxes alone will not end child poverty, so monetary donations are also encouraged. Give now!
