How a Food Drive Will Help Your Community

Why Hold a Food Drive?
Hunger in South Carolina is a year-round crisis. The Lowcountry Food Bank distributes 18 million pounds of food a year to the ten coastal counties of South Carolina, serving 200,000 different individuals. One in four children in the Lowcountry lives in poverty and is at risk of being food insecure. The Lowcountry Food Bank serves working families, children and the elderly and we can't do it without your help!

The Lowcountry Food Bank is a private, non-profit organization that is dedicated to distributing food to more than 350 charitable feeding programs that assist the needy and hungry throughout the ten coastal counties of South Carolina. Food is donated to us by a variety of sources including local food drives.

By sponsoring a food drive, your business, school, church, or organization can help alleviate hunger in the Lowcountry.. Food drives contribute much needed nonperishable food items that help stock the shelves of food pantries and other food assistance programs. A food drive is a great activity that is easy and rewarding. Everyone in your organization can get involved and make a difference in the lives of thousands of food insecure individuals in our community!!
