Proudly supporting local and national organizations that are helping underserved communities.
The Dr. Deborah Anders Giving Fund is a testimony to following God’s guidance of blessing others with the blessings we have received.
Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. – Galatians 6:2
This fund is made possible by dedicating 3% of profits to giving back. We provide monthly support to organizations that are following the same guidance of caring for others. Programs focusing on medical care, food security, and children are charities closest to our heart.
BLACK MOUNTAIN HOME began in 1904 as Mountain Orphanage. The home began its ministry taking in children whose parents had died or disappeared. Today, we serve youth from birth through college graduation and beyond through family foster care, residential care, transitional living, and independent living.
A TRUE CONTINUUM OF CARE – When children are in need of out-of-home placement, BMH can meet those needs through all the stages and phases of their growing up years. From infants born prematurely or with addictions to young adults working toward an educational or career goal, the ministry provides a safe, supportive home for youth of all ages and stages.
- Family foster care in the local community
- Cottage care on our campuses in Black Mountain and Pisgah Forest, NC
- Transitional Living providing life-coaching for teens
- Independent Living for older youth continuing their education beyond high school or working toward a specific career goal through our Apprenticeship Program
- Lifelong Living for those with learning or cognitive challenges who will need support as they move into adulthood

Founded in 2014 to help bridge the gap between food security and whole person health, Bounty & Soul provides a place where people can gather, feel valued, and be inspired to make healthy choices, no matter where they are in their life. Their mission: Together, we connect, share, and celebrate nutritious food, education, and community.
Produce to the People™ is a program focused on providing equitable access to nutritious, culturally relevant food through no-cost weekly community-based markets. In response to COVID-19, we have transitioned to a low contact pop up drive-through model where community members can get pre-packaged boxes of fresh, nutritious foods, education materials, and other wellness resources two days a week in the empty Bi-Lo parking lot off of I-40.
The Farmers Alliance program is committed to developing a supportive and reciprocal relationship between Bounty & Soul and local farmers and growers while connecting the community to local produce and gardening education. We partner with over 30 local farms, community gardens, and home gardens in Buncombe and surrounding counties to provide local foods at our Produce to the People™ markets.
Rooted in Health: A program that supports the belief that access to culturally relevant and community-focused education and wellness resources is something that every individual and community should be afforded.
At their markets and online, they share nutrition information, cooking demonstrations, food preservation, gardening, sustainability, self-care and stress-relief, and other community-wellness resources in the form of classes, resources, and written materials (in English & in Spanish).

World Medical Mission – Ministry of Samaritan’s Purse
World Medical Mission was established in 1977 to assist general surgeons who wanted to volunteer for short-term mission trips. Today, hundreds of volunteer Christian physicians, dentists, and other medical personnel work in mission hospitals and clinics around the world. World Medical Mission also staffs a biomedical department and warehouse that provides critically needed equipment and supplies to these medical facilities.
