About Us

                                               We will distribute over 25 million pounds of food in 2016

Our mission is to lead the fight against hunger in our community.
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.

The Lowcountry Food Bank serves the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina and aims to distribute more than 24 million pounds of food each year.  The Lowcountry Food Bank is a clearinghouse for donated food products that are distributed to a network of nearly 300 member feeding agencies including soup kitchens, homeless shelters and emergency food pantries. The Lowcountry Food Bank is a member of Feeding America and is committed to educating the public about the problems of and solutions to domestic hunger as well as advocating on behalf of our neighbors who experience hunger.

The LCFB will distribute more than 25 million pounds of food, including 6 million pounds of fresh produce,  to 200,000 families, children and seniors in 2016. We distribute food through our three distribution centers of Yemassee, Charleston and Myrtle Beach. We are a member of Feeding America, the nation's official network of food banks.
