Lowcountry Food Bank Joins Feeding America’s “Elevating Voices to End Hunger Together” Initiative



Press Release

Lowcountry Food Bank today announced its plans to join Feeding America’s initiative, “Elevating Voices to End Hunger Together,” an effort aimed to collect input from people facing food insecurity. Through “Elevating Voices to End Hunger Together,” the Feeding America nationwide network food banks will engage in a variety of activities to reach people in the community, listen and learn with the goal of co-creating solutions to be shared with the White House, which has set a goal to end hunger by 2030. 

“As the nationwide network of food banks, food pantries and meal programs, Feeding America provides billions of meals to tens of millions of people each year,” said Vince Hall, chief government relations officer at Feeding America. “The network covers every county, borough and parish and Elevating Voices aims to amplify the power and voices of neighbors in need across the country. Feeding America believes that communities understand the solutions to their problems better than anyone, and we want to help surface those solutions to inform policies and programs to end hunger.”

“We support Feeding America’s initiative to elevate the voices of our community members on a local level through our work to better understand the challenges our neighbors face in the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina,” said Nick Osborne, Lowcountry Food Bank President and CEO. “Ensuring that our neighbors who experience food insecurity have equitable access to healthy food is our priority, and this initiative will give us even greater insight to help our neighbors thrive.”

Earlier in May, the White House announced that it will host a conference on hunger, nutrition, and health this September aimed at ending hunger, reducing diet-related disease, and increasing physical activity. Lowcountry Food Bank shares Feeding America’s intent to focus Elevating Voices to End Hunger Together using the guiding principles that put the people facing hunger at the center, with solutions grounded in preserving their dignity and agency.
