Press Release

Lowcountry Food Bank announced it has received $50,000 from The Humana Foundation to assist with mobile food pantries in Williamsburg County. The investment will help Lowcountry Food Bank improve access to nutritious food by providing direct assistance to rural communities disproportionately affected by hunger.

“Throughout our response to the Covid 19 health and economic crisis, mobile food pantries have become a critical solution to helping us reach our neighbors in need,” said Nick Osborne, Lowcountry Food Bank President & CEO. “We are grateful to The Humana Foundation for supporting our efforts of expanding mobile food pantries to better serve rural communities that experience high rates of food insecurity.”

“Improving food security is one of The Humana Foundation’s core areas of focus. In communities where nutritious foods are inaccessible due to proximity, financial circumstances, and other barriers, this gap leads to preventable chronic diet-related conditions like diabetes and heart disease. The Humana Foundation is proud to continue our partnership with Feeding America as we work to achieve greater health equity and our shared goal of ensuring that everyone has the nourishment necessary to achieve and sustain positive health and well-being outcomes,” said Walter Woods, CEO of The Humana Foundation.

Mobile food pantries are a promising solution for addressing challenges, such as distributing foods that are more perishable and reaching underserved communities. Lowcountry Food Bank has been able to adapt mobile pantry programs to adhere to CDC guidelines and reach communities in need.
