Thanksgiving Food Resources in Western North Carolina
If you know someone who needs a little extra help at the holidays this year, we invite you to share our food resources!
Our partner agency network – nonprofit partners across 16 counties of WNC, including the Qualla Boundary – provide regular free food distributions and meals to anyone in the community who is experiencing a hard time. This year, our partners are providing additional information about their Thanksgiving food opportunities.
Our Food Helpline is also available to help point residents in the direction of free food resources closest to them, as well as offering exceptional support in people interested in applying for SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (also known as food stamps). The Food Helpline is available Monday – Friday, from 8am – 4pm. (The Helpline will be closed 11/25 – 11/26 for Thanksiving). Contact our Helpline at 1-800-820-1109, or text 828-202-9685.
