Who We Are & How We Work


Who We Are:

Food For Fairview is a local food pantry serving Fairview 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 on Mondays, 3–6 pm. Food for Fairview believes in the power of our community working together
to meet the immediate needs of our local community members struggling with hunger. Our mission is accomplished through the generosity of others sharing our spirit and vision.

We work with like-minded individuals, companies, grass root organizations, churches, schools, colleges and scouting groups to help eliminate hunger in the Fairview community and the greater WNC surrounding area. Individuals, 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.

The Application Process:

If you or someone you know is in need of food assistance help is right here. The process is simple and completely confidential. Applicants complete a brief qualifying form that will be reviewed and verified by Food For Fairview. This form can be completed on our website at foodforfairview.org, downloaded as a PDF to print or picked up at the pantry. If you know of a person or family needing help, please let them know about our community pantry.

How It Works:

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 (thanks to The Lord’s Acre), 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 community who are experiencing
financial hardship.

How You Can Help:

Monetary donations allow us to purchase food at bulk savings. Please mail to Food for Fairview, PO Box 2077, Fairview, NC 28730.
Donations can also be made online here at our website.

Food donations of non-perishable, canned goods and staples in good condition within the expiration date, produce from local gardens, diapers, paper products, and hygiene items are appreciated.

Items can be dropped off when the Pantry is open or after hours at the Fairview Christian Fellowship church
(look for the yellow box, lower level of the church) or the Fairview Post Office (look for the red wagon).

Volunteers are needed to help at the Pantry and other tasks. Complete information and a volunteer application can be found from the navigation menu here at our website.
