Donations of Food

Donation of Food is greatly appreciated. You can donate non-perishable canned goods and food staples in good condition within the expiration date, produce from local gardens, diapers, paper products, and hygiene items. Deliveries can be made during our open hours on Fridays, from 9:00 am until noon, at the lower level of the Fairview Community Center at 1357 E. Charlotte Hwy. Map directions can be found here and you can contact us by phone at 828.628.4322 or through our contact page.

Donations of Time

If you would like to volunteer your time to assist Food for Fairview as little as 4-5 hours a month can be a great help. There are opportunities available to greet and assist clients, stock shelves, transport food from MANNA Food Bank to the pantry and lend a hand with our fundraisers.

The generous donations of time, food and financial contributions allows us to better serve our local neighbors in need and provide a more responsive outreach with the resources that have been entrusted to us. Together we can work on a shared vision of eliminating hunger in our community of Fairview and in Western North Carolina.

If you have items you’d like to drop off after hours, you can leave your items at one of the following donation sites around town:

The Fairview Town Crier office (next to The Local Joint)
Fairview Christian Fellowship (look for the yellow box, lower level of the church)
Fairview Post Office (look for the red wagon)

PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE CHECKS OR CASH AT ANY OF THE ABOVE SITES!

Thank you for your contribution!


In 2011 Food for Fairview distributed approximately 185,000 pounds of food to individuals and families in the Fairview community who experienced financial hardship.

This year our goal has been set at an aggressive 250,000 pounds as we anticipate an unfortunate increase in demand. Please help us reach our goal so that we can continue to provide supplemental food to those in need.


“Volunteers aren’t paid, not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.”
