Stamp Out HungerMay 10, 2016
On May 14, 2016, letter carriers in more than 10,000 cities and towns across America collect the goodness and compassion of their postal customers who participate in the NALC Stamp Out Hunger National Food Drive — the largest one-day food drive in the nation.
Led by letter carriers, other postal employees and volunteers, the drive has delivered more than one billion pounds of food the past 24 years.
Carriers in the Midlands, Pee Dee and Upstate areas will collect non-perishable food donations left by mailboxes and in post offices and deliver them to Harvest Hope Food Bank.
To donate, just place a box or can of non-perishable food next to your mailbox before your letter carrier delivers mail on the second Saturday in May. The carrier will do the rest. The food is sorted and delivered to Harvest Hope Food Bank, where it is available for needy families.
With 1 out of every 5 people facing hunger every day in South Carolina, this drive is one way you can help those in your own community.

Food From the Heart 2016April 06, 2016
The 8th Annual “Food from the Heart” food drive is being held this Saturday, April 9th. Dozens of grocery stores in Richland and Lexington Counties will be taking part in the event, collecting donations for Harvest Hope Food Bank. This local mission food drive organized and worked by over 700 volunteers from Shandon Baptist and Northside Baptist Churches. Members position themselves on the outside of stores to offer shoppers the opportunity to take a red “Food from The Heart” grocery bag and participate by purchasing as few or as many products off a list of suggested items. Suggested items include canned goods, rice, beans, diapers, baby food and other items.
From there, they will be taken out to local food pantries and soup kitchens. Last year the food drive collected more than 150,000 pounds of food.
