Latino Outreach Program
Our Latino Outreach Program was officially launched at Felicidad Y Salud, a community outreach event on Wednesday, October 26. Almost 150 attendees celebrated the rich culture of the Latino community and were introduced to 22 social, legal and health & wellness resources. The program will continue, beginning in early 2017, based on inputs from members of this community as to their unique, specific needs. This is only the beginning of our Latino Outreach Program. Be on the lookout for ways in which you can help us continue serving this community!
A special thanks to the Community Foundation of Western North Carolina for supporting the work we do within the Latino community.

November: Stress Management
Join us as we learn healthy ways to relieve stress and reduce its harmful effects. We will discuss what stress is, how it relates to our health & well-being and how you can combat it. Join us this month as we explore the benefits of aromatherapy, healing foods, self-care, and physical movement. We will cook up healthy, easy to prepare recipes that will offer our stressed-out bodies and minds relief.

This holiday season, we have the privilege of being a part of Mountain Xpress’ Give!Local campaign, which promotes local activism by encouraging gifts to over 40 local nonprofits who are making a difference in our community. The fundraising campaign, which kicked off on November 2, will run through December 31 and will help us continue building capacity for our markets that currently provide 6,000 pounds of nourishing food to 600 families and individuals each week.
There are countless incentives for donating throughout the campaign. One very special one – Donate $1,000 or more to Bounty & Soul and you’ll receive a guided farm tour at New Sprout Organic Farm, followed by a tour and tasting at Pisgah Brewing Company. The top eight donors to Bounty & Soul will receive a New Sprout hat, and anyone who donates during the campaign can pick up a New Sprout bumper sticker at one of our mobile markets.
