  2. A Matching Gift for Harvest Hope Food Bank

Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic food insecurity has increased exponentially in the United States. I've watched the stories showcasing miles of car lines, all waiting for a basic necessity...food. Here in Florence County, while we may not see the car lines, we unfortunately have far too many families in need...to many not sure of their next meal. Food should not be an issue for anyone at anytime, especially in what is supposed to be the richest country in the world. The challenge is exponentially greater in rural areas across the Pee Dee.

I am hoping that through this match, others will join me in helping to bridge the gap towards food security for our neighbors throughout Florence County. This match is an opportunity to double or triple the families that Harvest Hope serves in our community. Together we are #FlorenceStrong!

Ours is a shared journey

In Support of Harvest Hope Food Bank
Harvest Hope is South Carolina’s largest food bank, providing over 20 million meals on average to neighbors in need across the Midlands, Pee Dee and Upstate. Harvest Hope is on a mission to eliminate hunger and food insecurity in South Carolina. We rescue nutritious food from stores throughout the state and distribute it to food pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens. 

We operate programs that provide food for our most vulnerable citizens – children, seniors, and rural residents who don’t have access to grocery stores. We also run our own emergency food pantries in Greenville and Columbia where anyone in need can get a week’s supply of groceries for free. 

Harvest Hope began in 1981 as the result of a shared vision of business leaders and the faith community, who set out to provide for the hungry in Columbia. Since then, Harvest Hope has increased its mission to feed the hungry across 20 counties in South Carolina.
