Program Highlight: Partnerships with Meals on Wheels

Lowcountry Food Bank has been working with East Cooper Meals on Wheels and Summerville Meals on Wheels for many years, providing nutritious meals for their clients who are homebound. We know the impact a good meal can have for someone who may not have access to food or be able to cook for themselves, and we invest time in ensuring the meals are not only delicious but packed with nutrients. Throughout the years we have had dietetic interns analyze our meals and make recommendations for new recipes or how we can bulk up the current meals. Our Zucker Family Production Kitchen, led by Chef Emily and Mary Beth, and with the support of more than 40 volunteers, made over 140,000 meals for our adult meal partners in 2022!

By The Numbers

With help from our staff, board, donors, volunteers and partner agencies, we’re able to make a lasting impact on the lives of food-insecure children, adults, veterans and seniors across the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina.

Our impact is demonstrated by our results and the lives we touch. We invite you to learn more about our work, our team and how we accomplish our mission.
