Did you know more than 1.5 million North Carolinians are food insecure?

The YMCA of WNC is working to change that with their Mobile Food Markets. Each month, 8,000+ locals are fed thanks to the farmer’s market style approach where attendees take home all the fresh fruit and vegetables they need at no cost.

Pro tip: It’s currently National Volunteer Week (April 16-23), and the YMCA of WNC is always looking for nutrition volunteers.*
