Watauga County Parks and Recreation Hosting Food For Friends Food Drive January 11 Through February 12

Watauga County Parks and Recreation is teaming up with Hospitality House, Casting Bread and the Hunger & Health Coalition to collect food items for those in need in the community. With cold winter temperatures here and the still-ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, food resources are needed now more than ever. 

Food items can be dropped off at the Watauga Community Recreation Center between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, from January 11 through February 12. 

Food will be delivered to local food pantries on Valentine’s Day, February 14. 

Non-perishable food items in need include low-sodium canned vegetables, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, canned fruit, shelf-stable fruit cups, unsweetened apple sauce, raisins, dried or low-sodium canned beans, canned tuna, canned salmon, canned chicken, soups, peanut butter, evaporated milk, pasta, cereal, oatmeal and rice.
