Abstract:
A nonprofit started by Ali Casparian in 2012 sought to do more than offer provisions for those experiencing food insecurity; she sought to help individuals have a healthier, sustainable way of life. Through the support of organizations such as MANNA Foodbank, Swannanoa Community Garden, and New Sprout Organic Farms, the dream has become a reality that has gone beyond her vision. The reality turned into three weekly market locations, a daycare center, senior housing center, provided for senior citizens and low-income families in Buncombe County.
