The Blowing Rock Cares Food Pantry will be open to all Watauga residents on Wednesdays from 9:00am to 12:00pm.

Blowing Rock Cares was started in November 2009 by Grandparent Linda Laughter, Parent Liz Tincher, and Blowing Rock School Secretary Trish Kohlasch after playground discussions in October. In the first 7 months an average of 20 children and adults were helped each month.
As of 2013, Blowing Rock Cares has evolved into a resource of Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church.
