FEAST Asheville – Grow, Prepare, Enjoy!


FEAST empowers youth and families to grow, prepare and enjoy fruits and vegetables through hands-on cooking and garden education. Find Volunteer Opportunities at FEAST.


“ I know these vegetables would taste really good if I liked all of these things. And I’ve realized that my taste buds need to taste things like ten times before I start to like them. So maybe if I start trying food during FEAST class, I will start to like more food.” – Aidan 4th grade Vance Elementary
“It is really easy to make fresh, healthy food on a low budget.” – Mathew 7th grade Asheville Middle School

We are a one-of-a-kind magazine that provides local, regional, national and international information about women’s lives and education, performing and visual arts and writing, the environment, green living and sustainability and regional Western North Carolina business, people and events. “Villages preserve culture: dress, food and dance are a few examples. As villages grow in population and turn into towns, local cafes make way for large American chains. Handmade leather sandals are discarded for a pair of Western sneakers. Due to its small size, a village fosters a tight-knit sense of community. explains the meaning of the African proverb, “It takes a village,” by stating that a sense of community is critical to maintaining a healthy society. Village members hold a wealth of information regarding their heritage: they know about the ancient traditions, methods of production and the resources of the land. When villages become dispersed or exterminated in times of war, this anthropological knowledge disappears. Large cities are not as conducive to growing and producing foods such as fruits and vegetables. Villages, on the other hand, usually have ample amounts of land and other resources necessary for growing conditions.” The Importance of Villages by Catherine Capozzi Our Mission provides readers with information important to women’s lives and well-being. We focus primarily on the areas of education & health, business & finance, the arts & the environment. We are particularly interested in local & regional resources, organizations & events.
