The ongoing pandemic has left pantries empty and friends still hungry. Across this past year, members and friends of FBCA have filled scores of food boxes for our neighbors in need. In January 2021, the church delivered 272 boxes to 74 families in our community. These families included 130 adults and 204 children. Most families were identified through an ongoing partnership with social workers at Asheville City Schools. Thank you for generous spirits and the food you have delivered each week. There is more to be done in the weeks ahead!
