Common drop-Off locations

Confused about where to drop off your bag or if your bag is able to be picked up? Watauga is literally a mountain and in some cases it takes 45 minutes just to get to one house. In an effort to reduce leaving a driver stranded and increase efficiency we have created drop off locations for some of the folks who are farther out in the county. 

Check out our updated map below, if your household is in one of the red areas, you are considered in a drop off location. If you are in a blue area your bag is able to be picked up on a residential route. 

You are more than welcome to drop off your bag at the Hunger and Health Coalition one week before a pick up and one week after the pick up. If you are dropping off please email asimplehhc@gmail.com.
