Asheville, NC (PRWEB) February 23, 2013
The WNC Home Lawn & Garden 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, Lawn & Garden Show is March 15-17, 2013 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. 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, cereals and grains, fruit and vegetable juice and dry milk. Avoid foods high in sugars and fats.
