Feeding Avery Families (FAF) is a non-profit Christian organization in Avery County dedicated to eliminating hunger by any means possible including monetary donations, volunteerism, or food donations.
100% of all your efforts and/or contributions on behalf of Feeding Avery Families goes directly to Avery County families who still need help after exhausting all other available resources. FAF provided 60% of the food assistance in Avery County in 2017. We currently distribute approximately 500 boxes of food reaching over 1000 individuals every month (generally on the last Friday) from our Food Distribution Center located at 508 Pineola Street in Newland, NC. If you have questions, want to make a contribution, or volunteer, contact Dick Larson at 828-783-8506. You can also mail Dick at P.O. Box 1075, Banner Elk, NC 28604.
