September is Hunger Awareness Month

What We Do So All Can Eat

Every day hundreds of local volunteers work tirelessly to provide support to many local people facing food insecurity. From the small churches across Beaufort, Hampton and Jasper counties to the food pantries strung out in the low country, food is distributed daily to the outstretched hand by dedicated volunteers.

“Poverty in the low country and in South Carolina is one of the highest in the country,” said Jan Malinowski, president of Second Helpings.  “We live in a very wealthy area of the country matched by some of the poorest.”

To focus attention on our agencies and the Second Helpings volunteers, a special campaign will feature them during the month of September.  The theme is paper plates.

Enjoy these visual representations of the hard work done year round to fight hunger.  Remember each of us can do our part to help people who don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

A special thank you to those who participated in this campaign.  Check out Facebook, Twitter and YouTube as well.  Our participating agencies lent their voice and faces to observe September Hunger Awareness Month.
