This Thanksgiving season, Grow Watauga partnered with the High Country Food Hub and the Local Food as Medicine (LocalFAM) to help our neighbors put local goodness on the menu for more than 125 families in Watauga County! Over $6500 in donations were collected from Food Hub customers, - matched by Grow Watauga! Funds were used to purchase fresh produce grown by local farmers, as well as turkeys and stuffing from our friends at Publix. Thanksgiving meal kits and hot meals are distributed by our community food access partners, Casting Bread and Blowing Rock Cares. Grow Watauga is grateful for the opportunity to partner with local organizations to serve even more families this holiday season!
