We have hundreds of partner agencies all over the 16 counties of WNC, 100 of them in Buncombe County. My role lets me work with all of them as a liaison, making sure they are taken care of, their food is safe for neighbors, and can build capacity as needed so they can keep our neighbors fed. I love this job because I get to interact with really incredible community leaders and neighbors all over the county.” – Lucy, Buncombe County Agency Relations Manager

Talking to agencies, hearing their stories, their difficulties, their worries and knowing that I’m helping ease their worries for their communities, it helps me keep getting up in the morning.” – José, Product Flow and Inventory Manager

As a former recipient of SNAP, I understand how daunting a social service application can be, along with the shame that is attached to reaching out for help. I love educating our community about the resources that are available, breaking down the stigma that surrounds this work, and normalizing the utilization of social safety nets that exist when times get tough.” – Gabby, Benefits and Support Services Manager
