South Carolina Ports donated $25,000 to the Lowcountry Food Bank to help feed those in need in the Lowcountry.
This donation from SC Ports comes at an important time as many are facing economic hardships amid rising prices of foods and household goods. In 2021, the Lowcountry Food Bank served nearly 34 million meals to 200,000 people in the Lowcountry.
“SC Ports mission extends beyond our gates,” SC Ports President and CEO Barbara Melvin said. “We believe in partnering with the organizations already doing the important work within our communities. We are so proud to support Lowcountry Food Bank’s mission of addressing hunger, improving food security and providing access to nutritious food for children and families in the Lowcountry.”
“SC Ports greatly impacts our region as an economic driver and plays an equally integral role with the generosity they show our neighbors,” Lowcountry Food Bank President and CEO Nick Osborne said. “We appreciate SC Ports continued support of our hunger programs as our neighbors continue to face challenging times.”
