Food Connection

We are so grateful for our partnership with Food Connection.

We were thrilled to get the call from Chef Shawn at UNCA that they've safely reopened AND that they were ready to resume food donations to Food Connection! We just picked up nearly 200 pounds of freshly prepared roasted turkey, lentils, vegetable curry, Brunswick stew and much more and dropped it off at Trinity Place Shelter for Runaway Youth. Resuming our partnership with UNCA has come as quite a relief! During COVID many events have been postponed or cancelled so our supply of donated surplus food has really decreased.
We are supplementing the need through our Chef Meal Donations program. Learn more here: https://food-connection.org/purchase-meals
THANK YOU, UNCA Dining Services for your commitment to the planet AND our community as we collectively believe that no fresh food should end up in the trash when it can be enjoyed by people in need!
