Harvest Hope Food Bank invites local communities to join them July 14-31 during their annual “Take a Bite Out of Hunger” campaign. To celebrate Shark Week, neighbors can take action and donate to Harvest Hope in support of people facing hunger across South Carolina.

In South Carolina alone, almost 11 percent of residents struggle to put adequate food on their tables. Everyone deserves enough to eat – and with help from community members, Harvest Hope can get food into the hands of those who need it the most.
“As summer is in full swing, and many are getting ready for one of the most exciting weeks on television, we want to encourage our community members to share that excitement with those less fortunate by donating a meal full of protein like tuna or chicken,” says Erinn Rowe, Harvest Hope CEO. “We’ve recently seen drop in both donations and food drives, and this is a fun opportunity for individuals, families, friends, colleagues, or organizations to come together and take action for your neighbors who need a helping hand.”

Harvest Hope encourages people across the Midlands to Take a Bite Out of Hunger by donating canned or pouched meat proteins such as tuna or chicken.

You can also get involved with the Harvest Hope by:
• Donating financially to help purchase food and keep trucks on the road.
• Shopping our Amazon Wishlist.
Signing up to volunteer at one of Harvest Hope’s branches.

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.
