In Anson County, the Burnsville Recreation and Learning Center plays a vital role in supporting the community by providing food and assistance. Partnering with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, which distributes 78 million pounds of food annually across 24 counties, the center ensures that local families have access to essential supplies. Through initiatives such as food drives, soup kitchens, and home drop-offs, the center meets the needs of those facing food insecurity.

The Burnsville center is known for its reliability and is seen as a lifeline by many in the community. It hosts weekly food drives and functions as an emergency food pantry. Expansion plans are underway to better serve the community, and those interested in supporting the center can call 704-826-8737 for more information.
