Food pantries in Asheville and Buncombe.

A number of Asheville area churches, pantries, and food banks offer help to the needy and low income in the region. Food pantries operate across Buncombe County North Carolina, and thousands of local individuals turn to them every year for low cost or free food, meals, and other assistance, such as clothing, baby supplies, diapers, or other aid.

The exact types of assistance provided will vary by food pantry. In general, some of the services provided will range from free groceries, perishable items, and government surplus food, to meals for the homeless or people on the verge of eviction. Other locations may provide clothing, personal hygiene items, furniture, or even from time to time limited amounts of financial assistance or bills and basic needs. When you need to get access to free food to make it through a difficult period, these Asheville food pantries are a great resource.
