One in five children in Watauga County do not know where their next meal will come from, and over 300 children here are already enrolled in our backpack program. We provide a rotating menu that provides for the full nutritional needs of every child in the program. 


If you can help us provide this food for an increasing number of students, please donate to us here.


If your child is experiencing food insecurity, or you know a child that may be hungry, please contact Anita Wilson at the Hunger Coalition at 828-262-1628 or email
