Press Release

The Buzz Asheville

The WNC Home, Garden & Green Living Show has teamed up with Manna FoodBank to help fight hunger in Western North Carolina, by offering $1.00 off admission ticket with a non-perishable food donation.

The Home, Garden & Green Living Show is March 21-23, 2014 at the US Cellular Center in downtown Asheville, North Carolina. Receive $1.00 off regular priced admission, $7.00 daily or a $15.00 weekend pass. Each show attendee must bring a donation to be eligible for a discount.

Manna Food Bank relies heavily on donations to fight hunger in Western North Carolina. The unusual cold temperatures and harsh winter has been hard on those in need. 1 in 6 of our neighbors are seeking food assistance and at least 33,000 children in this region rely on Manna FoodBank. The producer of the home show, Tim Alexander, has chosen to create a food drive in association with the show – “The few months following the holidays tend to be slower donation months for Manna FoodBank. We hope we can help increase donations for this local non-profit.”

The most needed food items include: canned meats, peanut butter, dried/canned beans, hearty soup, meals in a box or can, canned fruits, canned vegetable, cereals and grains, fruit/vegetable juices and dry milk. For more information about Manna FoodBank, visit www.mannafoodbank.org.
