Easing Hunger in Henderson County Since 2000
Providing Assistance with Dignity and Kindness
A registered 501(c)(3) non-profit
We are a Christ-centered ministry providing food and life's most basic necessities for those in need in Henderson County, NC. Our Food Pantry assists local seniors, singles and families.
Our Ongoing Mission
In Partnership With You
It's been our vision and ongoing mission since 2000, that each person in Henderson County has sufficient food and hygiene items to live life with dignity and without hunger.
We serve approx. 325 families monthly and individuals of all ages through our client food box pick up at 1049 Spartanburg Highway, our four countywide delivery routes to 50 seniors, and biweekly food box deliveries to Sammy Williams Center serving 40+ individuals.
Throughout the year we also partner with the backpack program at Bruce Drysdale Elementary School, Blessings in Boxes for local children at Christmas and Thanksgiving groceries for 35-40 families.
'Blessings in Boxes'

Lynn and the 'Blessings in Boxes' volunteers are now meeting local parents, gathering a Christmas list for each child! Our thanks to the schools and local agencies who identify the families who need some holiday help this year.

THANK YOU FOR MATCHING DONATIONS DURING OUR FOURTH of JULY CAMPAIGN!
Neighbors Helping Neighbors
the way it's supposed to be
Hunger is painful and impacts many of our local children, seniors and those struggling with sudden economic changes.
Our food supply comes from individual donations and local food drives. We also use the resources of Manna Food Bank, part of Feeding America.
Financial donations are critical to meeting the increasing needs of our Henderson County neighbors. A $100. donation provides us with 665 pounds of food!
And we absolutely love when a club, school or church group organizes a food drive for us! That's a great team builder for clubs and groups.
Essentials delivered to our seniors
Thanks to a grant from CFWNC
Some very good news from 2020! A $15K grant from
The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina
enabled The Storehouse to provide essential (and sometimes scarce) items to our 50 seniors on home delivery.
Trash bags, soaps, cleaning supplies, paper items, shampoo, deodorant and other personal care items were delivered throughout the year. In addition to their regular food boxes, these extra supplies were delivered monthly, and some bimonthly, by our four volunteer delivery teams.
The scarcity of many items, coupled with seniors on a fixed income, could have been a recipe for disaster during these uncertain times. The grant from The Community Foundation of Western North Carolina plus $1505. added by The Storehouse, kept the supply line flowing to some of the most vulnerable people we serve.
We are very grateful for their help and are seeking partners to help us continue this project on an abbreviated level this year!
Join Our Volunteer Team
We always welcome new volunteers!
Volunteer where you know you make a difference! The Storehouse is volunteer driven and the opportunities to help are many. Please call 828-692-8300.
Perhaps you would enjoy: talking with clients, answering the phone, packing food boxes in the pantry, helping with deliveries, data entry, assisting at our special events, or interviewing clients and helping them get assistance. We will find a place where you can really shine as you help those in your community!
There are even more ways to help in the Fall. We visit local churches to meet with parents and begin our Annual 'Blessings in Boxes'!
