Published

The Lowcountry Food Bank announced today a family-friendly event that aims to bring awareness to hunger issues in coastal South Carolina and raise funds for Lowcountry Food Bank programs, including Senior Meals, Childhood Hunger programs, and fresh produce options for the community.

The Lowcountry Food Bank Walk to Fight Hunger will take place on Sunday, September 19th at Riverfront Park in North Charleston. Individuals, companies, civic groups, schools, and churches are encouraged to put together fundraising walk teams and celebrate with the community at the event.

“Food insecurity among children in the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina the Lowcountry Food Bank serves rose 38% between 2019 and 2020 with more than 55,000 children who don’t know where their next meal is coming from,” said Nick Osborne, Lowcountry Food Bank President & CEO. “The rise in food insecurity among adults in the Lowcountry rose 29% between 2019 and 2020, representing more than 185,000 people who struggle with hunger,” he said. “As we begin to recover from the economic effects of Covid-19, the need is still great to ensure our food-insecure neighbors can live a healthy life. We encourage our community to participate in the Walk this fall and learn a little more about hunger issues at the event.”
