You are invited to attend the McDowell Local Food Advisory Council (LFAC) Community Meeting to celebrate the dedication of the Foothills Food Hub kitchen to Sue Glovier on Wednesday, June 21, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m, 263 Barnes Road, Marion.

Sue Glovier in front of Governor's mansion in RaleighThe Sue Glovier Teaching Kitchen will honor Sue Glovier, a long-time resident, educator, and volunteer in McDowell County. Sue has served McDowell County throughout her life. She was awarded the 2013 Governor’s Medallion Award for Volunteer Service, a volunteer service award for the top volunteers in the state. If you have been living in McDowell County for a while, it’s fair to say that you have probably eaten a meal prepared by Sue Glovier. During her life of service, Sue was involved with reunions, McDowell Hospice, Senior Home-bound Meals, Pioneer Days, Oktoberfest, 4-H clubs, and the Extension Community Association.

Sue’s working days were spent with McDowell County Schools until she retired in 1995. It was in 1993 that Sue made the switch from educator to Director of Food Services for the school system. Food, eating healthy, and helping others how to prepare healthy meals has always been a part of Sue’s life. Given that history, allowing for the teaching kitchen to be in her name will continue Sue’s contribution to families learning to prepare and experience healthy meals far into the future.
