Pounds of goodness distributed
Volunteer hours served
September was Hunger Action Month; a period when hunger relief organizations like Bounty & Soul
were raising awareness of the issues of food insecurity within our community, and recognizing
individuals and community partners who joined to create solutions. Bounty & Soul wants to thank
everyone who donated to our appeals and especially thank these businesses:
• Native Kitchen and all their customers who ate a Pear & Bleu Panini, the proceeds of which
were donated to Bounty & Soul.
• Louise’s Kitchen and all their customers who enjoyed Louise’s Cakes and AppalaChai, the
proceeds of which were donated to Bounty & Soul.
• The Dripolator and their customers who donated generously to support those we serve.
What to give on #GivingThursday
We all have that person or those people in our lives who “have everything”. A very meaningful Holiday gift that you can give them is a donation to Bounty & Soul. Every $1 donated becomes 3-4 days of fresh produce and whole grains for a local family who struggles to put enough food on the table. And, on #GivingTuesday your donation will be matched dollar for dollar thanks to a generous donor who wants you to stretch your support. Your $1 becomes $2! If you do this, we will send an acknowledgement card to those you are honoring prior to the Holidays. Or, we can fill out an acknowledgement card that you can give to them. Everyone wins – Your issue with what to get that person is handled. That person gets a thoughtful gift. Local families will have food on their tables for the Holidays.

In an effort to keep our volunteers and participants safe, our inclement weather plan follows the lead of Buncombe County Schools. That means,
• If Buncombe County Schools are canceled, Bounty & Soul markets are canceled.
• If Buncombe County Schools are released early due to snow, Bounty & Soul afternoon markets are canceled.
• If Buncombe County Schools have a delay, Bounty & Soul markets continue as normal.
