FOOD FOR FAIRVIEW is a local food pantry serving Fairview, N.C. and the surrounding community. The all volunteer pantry was organized in 1999 and is located in the Fairview Community Center at 1357 E. Charlotte Hwy. We are open for assistance on Mondays from 3:00 pm until 6:00 pm.
We are a “Client’s Choice” pantry, in which families receive individual attention from volunteers in selecting food and hygiene products. As clients walk through the pantry, they are allowed to choose the vegetables, meat products, soups, baking items, pastas, etc. that their family can use. This interaction with the families allows us to provide assistance in a compassionate manner to those members of our Fairview community who are experiencing financial hardship.
Our goal at Food for Fairview is to work with like-minded individuals and other local organizations to help eliminate hunger in the Fairview community and the greater WNC surrounding area. Individuals, companies, grass root organizations, churches, schools, colleges and scouting groups are encouraged to contact us if you feel you can contribute your time and efforts to assist us in expanding our outreach. We depend on the support of people like you to help us accomplish this goal.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
· Donation of Money allows Food for Fairview to purchase food taking advantage of Manna Food Bank in Asheville where food can be purchased in bulk at a savings. We also shop local stores.
· Donation of Food is always appreciated. The food should be non-perishable canned goods and food staples in good condition within the expiration date. Produce from local gardens, diapers, paper products, and hygiene items are welcome.
· Donation of Time is a rewarding way to give to your community. Volunteers are needed to greet clients, assist them in shopping, stock shelves, carry boxes to cars, transport food from MANNA Food Bank to the pantry, and help with fundraisers. As little as 4-5 hours a month is a great help.
