Habitat ReStore hosts food drive for MANNA April 5

From the Habitat for Humanity ReStore:

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (March 26, 2014) – The Habitat ReStore at 31 Meadow Road will host a one-day food drive for MANNA FoodBank on Saturday, April 5 from 9am-6pm. Customers who bring 5 cans of food will receive a 20% discount on purchases made that day. ReStore proceeds support Asheville Area Habitat’s home building programs.

Lack of safe, decent and affordable housing and hunger are both conditions of poverty. Every day, Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity and MANNA FoodBank work to eradicate poverty housing and hunger, respectively. The April 5th food drive provides community residents the opportunity to simultaneously support both non-profits.

“For the sixth consecutive year, we will offer one-day 20% discount incentive in hopes of collecting at least 800 pounds of food for MANNA FoodBank,” said Scott Stetson, ReStore General Manager.
