Food is medicine. Simple.

With the right tools and information, our clients can begin to live healthier lives helping to shorten the lines not just at local food banks, but also pharmacies.

Food is medicine, simple as that.

That's why we strive to offer the freshest produce available to our clients while helping families and individuals navigate their food boxes through nutritional education from our very own nutrition team. 

Investing locally means that everyone in the community wins.

As the leading purchaser from High Country Food Hub, the Hunger and Health Coalition takes great pride in keeping our money local. 

The Hunger and Health Coalition is leading the way.

Through partnerships with local agencies such as Appalachian Regional Healthcare System, we are tackling food insecurity right when it appears. That includes your doctor visits!
