ABYSA, Land O'Frost Kick Out Hunger!

ABYSA families work to Kick Out Hunger!

In partnership with Land O’Frost and Manna Food Bank, ABYSA will sponsor a Kick Out Hunger! Food Drive October 24-30. ABYSA will collect donations of canned and shelf-stable items (see suggested items below) at John B Lewis Soccer Complex and the Buncombe County Sports Park.

Beginning this Sunday, donation stations will be found at the entrance to each field at the JBL, and our club-wide effort culminates on match day on Saturday, October 30 at both JBL and BCSP.

As a family company, Land O’Frost sees great importance in keeping our communities and their families healthy and active. That’s why they devised the Land O’Frost Youth Sports Initiative in 2003, which provides funds to help cover costs associated with organizing and operating youth sports organizations. Through that program, Land O’Frost has been a partner with ABYSA since 2011.

Manna FoodBank was founded in 1982 by the Hunger Awareness Group in Asheville, North Carolina. Food distribution began in 2003. In fiscal year 2019/2020 MANNA distributed 21.5 million pounds of food through more than 200 community-based food assistance partners to thousands of families across 16 Western North Carolina counties. Manna’s mission is to involve, educate, and unite people in the work of ending hunger in Western North Carolina, and its vision is a hunger-free WNC.

ABYSA and HFC recognize that food security is an ongoing crisis in our community, and hope that our families can join this effort to Kick out Hunger! We believe that this cooperative project helps us meet our mission to “Empower children, strengthen families, and enrich our community through soccer, the world’s game.”
