Bounty & Soul – creating a health and wellness movement
Bounty & Soul is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a health and wellness movement in underserved communities in Buncombe and McDowell Counties. Our fresh, free food markets provide healthy, fresh produce and whole grains along with nutrition education and health and wellness resources for children, families, individuals, and seniors who struggle with food insecurity and poor health. We offer our services at five weekly markets.
Bounty & Soul distributes produce that is donated by dozens of local farmers and growers such as Dr. John Wilson Community Garden, The Lord’s Acre, New Sprout Organic Farms, Barefoot Farms. MANNA FoodBank is our major source of food and we rescue food that would otherwise be thrown away from Publix Super Markets, Walmart and Sam’s Club. We hope to serve as a model to be implemented in communities everywhere to ensure that health and healthy eating is not a luxury, but a right. Click for more information
