Strengths & Challenges
Swain County is a caring community which cares about the well being of others. We have many churches and organizations that are willing to help. With a united front, we can reduce hunger in Swain County. Our challenges: a rural community, lack of transportation, 6-% of students receive free/reduced lunch, grandparents raising grandchildren, substance abuse, and significant poverty, which all contribute to food insecurity.
