Calling All Crafty Folks! (Fridays)
BOUNTY & SOUL
Before you even begin thinking about volunteering, ask yourself - Am I well enough to volunteer? Your safety and limiting the spread of COVID-19 is everyone’s main priority. We encourage you to review and adhere to the recommendations on the Buncombe County readiness site on how best to avoid COVID-19 and what to do if you think you might have it.
Bounty & Soul is a community-based non-profit with a mission to provide access to fresh produce and wellness education to everyone.
As market attendance continues to soar our need for handwritten love notes is growing. We're seeking a handful of volunteers to spend some dedicated time crafting messages of encouragement for us to slip into our weekly food bags. These love notes mean so much to our community as a new participant recently expressed, "Oh my goodness I just wanted to tell you how grateful I am for these beautiful messages that sneak their way into our boxes. The one I received yesterday was particularly special and was exactly what I needed to hear! I literally cried tears of joy when I read it. Thank you for all of your time dedicated to this beautiful volunteer project and thank you to all the people that send these notes, they really do make a difference!" Bring a lunch, bring a friend, bring your craft supplies (or use ours!) The sky's the limit!
Fridays 9-10:30am at the Bounty & Soul office.

We have to limit the number of people attending each project. This helps everyone stay safe by following COVID-19 specific safety measures.

Safety is our top priority and we want to be sure needs are met while also being safe.
About BOUNTY & SOUL
999 OLD US 70, BLACK MOUNTAIN, NC 28711, US
Bounty & Soul is a non-profit organization that connects people to food, education and each other. We are creating healthier communities by providing fresh healthy food, nutrition literacy and health & wellness resources for our neighbors in need. We are committed to developing a cooperative model that can be used in communities across the country where food insecurity and malnutrition are present.
Bounty & Soul is a grassroots, volunteer-run non-profit dedicated to creating a health and wellness movement in underserved communities in Buncombe County.
We offer weekly free fresh produce markets paired with interactive health and wellness classes for adults and children including live cooking demonstrations, yoga, Zumba and more! We are dedicated to creating a more just, equitable and thriving food system, healthcare system and community.
Prior to COVID-19 Bounty & Soul operated five weekly free fresh produce markets paired with weekly interactive health and wellness classes for adults and children including live cooking demonstrations, yoga, Zumba and more! In light of the recent public health crisis we've pivoted our model to meet the growing needs of the community to a drive-thru distribution model that operates twice a week. Participants receive pre-packed boxes of food, like a free CSA and still have access to education and resources that are included in the boxes as well as on our website and social media.
