Produce giveaway spreading its roots

From Western North Carolina-

A local non-profit that provides healthy food options for families in need is looking to expand its operation.

The Produce Giveaway began as an off-shoot of the Welcome Table in July of 2012. Starting in September, the Welcome Table will end its Wednesday lunch and fellowship and put all of its efforts into food distribution.

“We’re excited about the opportunity we have to reach more individuals and more communities and help them access healthy food and nutritional resources,” Ali Casparian, one of the founders of the produce distribution program, said.

The program, which is open to community members in need, is every Tuesday at St. James Episcopal Church. At 11:30 a.m., Casparian, a certified holistic health coach, gives a half hour talk on healthy eating and then does a cooking demonstration.
