Lowcountry Food Bank Expands Efforts For Its Neighbors During COVID-19

For residents of South Carolina, the Lowcountry Food Bank is an invaluable resource for feeding families and helping the community. The DRI Foundation is proud to support the organization with a donation from the Global Pandemic Fund.

Lowcountry Food Bank serves the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina through distribution centers in Charleston, Yemassee and Myrtle Beach. Its focus on ending hunger includes childhood and senior programs, nutrition education, produce initiatives, and networking with partner agencies throughout the region.

As part of its COVID-19 response, LFB is working closely with partner agencies to determine the safest methods to serve its most vulnerable friends and neighbors — senior citizens and children (and their families) who may be losing access to prepared meals and stocked food. “We also know businesses and their employees will be impacted by a decline in commerce and lost wages,” it said in a recent statement. “We are continuing preparations to ensure we can serve our neighbors who may not usually come to us for assistance.”

The DRI Foundation is proud to support such nonprofit organizations in communities impacted by disasters to provide crucial assistance. 100 percent of the money collected for the Global Pandemic Fund will go to small, local organizations that are an integral part of their communities. Click here to donate.
