Giving has never tasted this good!
Appalachia is defined as a cultural region spanning the Eastern United States from northern Alabama, Georgia and Mississippi to Southern regions of New York. As of the 2010 census this region was home to over 25 million Americans. It is a region from which America’s growth was, and in many places still is, quite literally fueled from coal mining, logging, steel and agriculture. It is a region that is rich in culture, tradition and family values, and in so many places, it is economically distressed. The Appalachian region is home to some of the most impoverished counties in the country.
Our goal is to alleviate hunger in this region starting right here at home, Watauga County, NC through a partnership with the Hunger & Health Coalition of Boone. Hunger in Watauga County is a heartbreaking reality. Did you know:
- 25% of children live in food insecure homes.
- 7450 people are food insecure.
- 4000 individuals participate in SNAP.
- 41.3% of public school aged children participate in free or reduced lunches
With these staggering numbers it’s not hard to see just how blessed Watauga County is to receive the assistance of the Hunger and Health Coalition of Boone.
It’s not hard to see why we have partnered with the Hunger and Health Coalition, as they are a beautiful organization with a beautiful mission! They have three programs specifically geared towards feeding nutritious snacks and meals to hungry children in Watauga County, which is of great necessity, seeing as 1 in 3 people who receive food are children in need.
While it may not seem that we have control of the situations that life has put on our path, children have even less control, and with your subscription to the 30 Thirty Project, you are directly benefiting our Watauga families in need.
