Mission Statement

Our mission as a food bank is to help provide basic non-perishable food to families and individuals in Watauga County and to supplement other county services and help fill in the gap in availability parameters. We are a 501(c)3 organization.

Who Qualifies

Families must reside in Watauga County.

Hours

The Blowing Rock C.A.R.E.S. food bank is open on Mondays from 9 am to 1 pm at the former Rumple Pre-school entrance in the back of Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church.

History

Blowing Rock C.A.R.E.S. was started in November 2009 by Grandparent Linda Laughter, Parent Liz Tincher and Blowing Rock School Secretary Trish Kohlasch after playground discussions in October.  In the first 7 months an average of 20 children and adults were helped each month.

As of 2013, Blowing Rock C.A.R.E.S. has evolved to a family-oriented food bank now located at the former Rumple Pre-school entrance in the back of Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church.
