Helping Hands/Food Pantry


There are people who experience food insecurity in McDowell County. There are families containing members who work long hours trying to make ends meet often resulting in a small amount of funds to allow purchasing of food or folks are left with very little to cover the cost of food and left no choice but to buy food that is cheaper and less healthy.

In addition to this, people who live below the poverty line consist of roughly 16 percent out of McDowell's population of over 40,000 residents. These people have less access to a sustainable food source, not to mention the children who rely on their caretakers to provide them with it.
