Grant from Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina

Special thank you to Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina for awarding a Caritas grant to Second Helpings.  This grant will be used to support the costs of truck operations.  Read what drove them to donate to us.

Second Helpings is a volunteer-driven organization that rescues surplus food from area grocery stores and delivers it to food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency food banks who in turn distribute it to those in need. All food they collect is distributed the same day.  Funding will support the general operating costs to ensure that Second Helpings is able to alleviate hunger as an effective and efficient distribution channel between food donors and charitable food providers.
