Fishes & Loaves Food Pantry Empty Bowls in Jackson County
Every Can You Donate is a Meal to Someone in Need
The Fishes and Loaves Food Pantry Empty Bowls in Jackson County food drive is held every October at the Fishes and Loaves Food Pantry. The event features hand-turned pottery created by volunteers at The Bascom in Highlands, NC. We serve individuals and families in all areas of Jackson County, the surrounding areas in Western North Carolina, and beyond.
