About Us

The Lowcountry Food Bank was founded in 1983 as a clearinghouse for donated food items through the generosity of both the 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 and farmers and redistribute these food products to a grassroots network of nearly 300 member agencies providing hunger-relief services throughout the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina.

The LCFB will disribute more than 25 million pounds of food, including 6 million pounds of fresh produce,  to 200,000 families, children and seniors in 2016.  We are a member of Feeding America, the nation's official network of food banks.
