The guide can also be found a participating kiosks where the Mountain X-Press paper is available.

What is the Go Local Card?

It's a loyalty card that allows you to shift your shopping and support excellent education for all students. With every $15 Go Local Card sold, 1/3 goes to directly to schools and youth-serving programs, 1/3 goes to Asheville City Schools Foundation's equity fund and grant making programs, and the remaining third supports Asheville's Buy Local Campaign. That means 100% of the purchase price stays in a our community.

The new card (Raspberry) is valid December 1st 2013 to December 31st 2014.
