Welcome to the Avery County Missional Network. Hundreds of children in the Avery County school system depend on a reduced or free school lunch each day of the week during the school year for their basic nutritional needs; the weekends sadly offer a very different story!
Social workers and school counselors tell us there are over two hundred and eighty (280) at risk children who are ''food insecure'' and get very little or nothing to eat when they go home for the weekend.
Manna Foodbank out of Asheville does offer a ''Manna Pack'' of food equivalent to 1 or 2 meals for the target group of children.
We work closely with Manna to SUPPLEMENT the food each week to provide an additional 5 to 6 meals each weekend.
