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 connect people to food, education and each other.

We are seeking a handful of detail-oriented people to inspect our food boxes before they go to market pulling out items that are not in "market condition" like berries, greens, mushrooms and pre-diced foods that may be better suited for our compost partners. Shifts take place Tuesdays and Fridays at St. James and BI-LO (205 NC-9, Black Mountain NC 28711).

Shifts Occur:

  • Tuesdays 8:00-10:00AM at St. James

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
