About Bounty & Soul
Bounty & Soul is a grassroots, volunteer-run non-profit dedicated to creating a health and wellness movement in underserved communities in Buncombe and McDowell Counties. Our free, fresh food markets provide healthy food along with nutrition education and health and wellness resources, in both English and Spanish, for children, families, individuals, and seniors who otherwise may not have access. We currently serve over 600 people throughout the Greater Swannanoa Valley and continue to grow each day.
Bounty & Soul distributes produce that is donated by local farms and gardens including the Dr. John Wilson Community Garden, The Lord’s Acre, New Sprout Organic Farms and a dozen other local growers. Through our partnership with MANNA FoodBank we are able to secure additional produce and healthy staples including whole grains, beans, nuts and donations from retailers like Publix, Walmart, Sam’s Club and The Fresh Market.
We will continue to dedicate our efforts to improving the lives of thousands of people in need in Western North Carolina and beyond through the help of our passionate neighbors and supporters. 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.
