Lowcountry Food Bank

Mission & History

 

  • Our mission is to lead the fight against hunger in our community
  • Our vision is to end hunger in coastal South Carolina.
  • Our guiding principles are: Feed. Advocate. Empower.

 


The Lowcountry Food Bank was founded in 1983 as a clearinghouse for donated food items through the generosity of both Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina and Trident United Way.

Our service model is simple and cost-effective. We collect, inspect, maintain, and distribute otherwise wasted food products from manufacturers, food distributors, the government, supermarkets, wholesalers along with farmers to redistribute these food products to a grassroots network of over 320 member agencies providing hunger-relief services throughout the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina.

The Lowcountry Food Bank also offers resources such as nutrition education, safe food handling practices, and maintenance information. We are a member of Feeding America, the nation's official network of food bank's. To learn more visit www.feedingamerica.org.
