The Blowing Rock C.A.R.E.S. food pantry is open for clients on Mondays from 9 am to 3 pm at the former Rumple Pre-school entrance at the back of Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church on 1218 Main Street in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.

Please check Ray’s Weather (www.raysweather.com) for any delays or closings of the food pantry due to winter weather.

If the food pantry is closed due to inclement weather or holiday, no food will be given out on any other day that week from the food pantry. Clients can visit other, local food pantries. Additionally, Hunger & Health Coalition is open 5 days per week, excluding national holidays and Hospitality House is open 7 days per week.

Clients making requests for assistance with heating or utility bills will be referred to WeCan (part of Hospitality House in Boone). For more information, visit the WeCAN webpage on the Hospitality House website:  http://hospitalityhouseofboone.org/campaign.php?id=6.
