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. Through our partnerships within the community, we are able to provide food boxes on a monthly basis for families in need.
We serve approx. 325 families monthly and individuals of all ages. Most clients pick up their food boxes at 1049 Spartanburg Highway. Our countywide delivery routes assist 50+- seniors to fill the gaps for those most in need. We also make biweekly food box deliveries to Sammy Williams Center serving 40+ individuals and 100+ other seniors, within the county. These deliveries help seniors extend their budgets, filling in the gaps and assuring better nutrition.
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.
How Can We Help You?
Serving people based on their needs-not their religious beliefs
If you are in need of food or essential hygiene items please call 828-692-8300 on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, 9am-2pm. We will schedule an appointment time for you. PLEASE CALL BEFORE COMING to The Storehouse, because you will need to bring certain information with you.

Please come inside to pick up your food boxes. Need some prayer? Our Prayer Teams are ready to pray with you.
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 as we begin our Annual 'Blessings in Boxes'!

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 667 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!
