We are excited to announce our partnership with Asheville First Church of the Nazarene as they are now running a second food pantry location! Our hope is to serve more people each month by having a location that will be more easily accessible to residents on that side of Patton as well as reach individuals and families who were not aware of our first location.
The food pantry is located at their building at 385 Hazel Mill Rd. It is open on the first Saturday of each month from 9-10am.
Both of our panties are "client choice" meaning that there are no pre-stocked boxes to pick up, but instead clients can choose the items that they need and want.
The pantry opened last Saturday and saw 19 clients. A group of volunteers from Asheville First Church of the Nazarene was on hand to serve and will continue to do so monthly. Signs will be posted adjacent to the building.
The Calvary Baptist location will still be open on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month from 3-4:30.
