The North Toxaway Baptist Church Food Bank was established in 2005 to provide for those in need in the local area, distributing food twice a month. In 2015, the Food Bank teamed with Manna Food Bank in Asheville, paying a small delivery fee and a portion of costs for the purchased food. Volunteers from the church congregation and others work every other week to help unload trucks, stock shelves, fill food boxes, and distribute food to over sixty registered families from the Lake Toxaway, Sapphire and Quebec communities. Thanks to funding from Lake Toxaway Charities and others, the North Toxaway Baptist Church Food Bank continues to offer much needed food assistance in western Transylvania County.
Lake Toxaway Charities supported North Toxaway Baptist Church Food Bank in 2020 and 2021 with grants to help provide nourishment for families in need.
