In some areas, such as Darlington or Marion counties, 80% of children depend on these programs for their meals.

That's why our Backpack program is so important in many communities. In the BackPack Program, each child receives a backpack of child-friendly, nutritious, easy-to-open food to last them over the weekend. We are currently in the process of looking for “Faith Partners” (churches located near our Backpack schools) for our Backpack Program to help pack backpacks each week and send them to schools for distribution.  If you are interested, please contact Mason Harrington at (803) 254-4432 ext 1116 or by email

Harvest Hope struggles to feed these hungry children through our Kids Cafe and BackPack programs, which provide meals and high nutrition snacks for children after school.
