Many area residents deal with hunger-related issues on a daily basis.

It’s been estimated that one out of six people in Western North Carolina are food insecure.
Founded to relieve hunger and poverty in the High Country, the Hunger and Health Coalition in Watauga County is in critical need of food donations.

The Appalachian student ambassadors at Appalachian State University, in partnership with the Hunger and Health Coalition, are encouraging all fans to bring canned foods and nonperishable food items to the home ASU football game Saturday, Oct. 29. The donations will be turned over to the coalition.

Special area food needs include instant oatmeal, peanut butter and cereal, but all donations are appreciated.

Drop-off points will be located at the ticket plaza and the east and west gates prior to the 3 p.m. kickoff at Kidd Brewer Stadium on the ASU campus.
