Lowcountry Food Bank Foundation Logo

Lowcountry Food Bank Foundation’s mission is to provide a consistent and sustainable source of funding to support the Lowcountry Food Bank.

“The Lowcountry Food Bank has for many years been the primary focus of my charitable activities. From managing a partner agency, to serving on the Board of Directors, to leading the organization, I know how very effective the Food Bank is in addressing food insecurity in the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina.

My planned gift to the Lowcountry Food Bank Foundation will helpensure that the Food Bank has the capacity and resources it needs to lead the fight against hunger for years to come.”

We Must Do More.

We want to increase our capacity to serve more people in the rural and outlying communities of our service area. We want to develop greater capacity for our partner agencies and recruit more people to assist in food distribution. We want to develop new and innovative ways to serve those in need.

With the creation of the Lowcountry Food Bank Foundation and the Patricia S. Walker Endowment, this endowment fund will provide a permanent, sustainable source of income to supplement the annual dollars we raise.
