Heat or Eat - No One Should Have to Choose

The sometimes blustery days of winter have arrived, and Northwest North Carolina, families are seeing utility bills rise. For neighbors living paycheck to paycheck, the added expenses can bring further hardship. 

According to the US Energy Information Administration, nearly one in three American households struggle to pay utility bills between November and March. About one in five households also reported forgoing basic necessities, such as food or medication, to pay energy bills.

No one should have to choose between buying the food they need and keeping themselves warm. With your support, we can help ensure that every child, every senior, every family, every neighbor has the food they need - that each of us needs  - as the foundation for all else we do.

Your gift of any size will combine with others to have a transformative impact in the lives of children, seniors, and families. 

Thank you for feeding community with us!
