Program Highlight: Food For Health
Our Food for Health initiative aims to improve access to nutritious foods alongside local healthcare partners to improve health outcomes and food insecurity of our neighbors. We are piloting this program at four participating Federally Qualified Healthcare clinics. Patients who screen positive for food insecurity receive a box of healthy, shelf-stable food (low sodium and low sugar fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat protein) and a referral to a Lowcountry Food Bank agency partner where they have access to nutritious food when they need it.
In 2022, we are tracking Food for Health program data to inform our future plans, our reporting, and program evaluations, and we hope to expand the program to additional healthcare partners to sustain and grow the Food for Health program initiative.
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.
