Harvest Hope Emergency Food Pantry FAQs
- What do I need to bring with me?
In order to receive government commodity food, you must go to a pantry in the county where you reside. You’ll also need to present your picture ID and birthdays for everyone in the household. If you do not reside in the same county as the pantry, you will receive donated food only.
- Do I need an appointment?
Nope! You can come anytime during our hours of operation, usually from 9 am to 1 pm on weekdays. We are closed the last business day of every month for inventory.

Tour Our Facilities
Harvest Hope Food Bank offers tours of all of our facilities to detail the ways we receive, store, and distribute food to more than 430 qualified agencies, and assist families and children throughout South Carolina. Our tours are designed to help guests better understand hunger issues and how we strive to meet the needs of our hungry neighbors. We do not ask for donations at any time during our tours.
Help us help them.
Almost 700,000 people in South Carolina struggle with hunger and food insecurity. An unexpected job loss or medical issue can quickly become a financial emergency. People need a way to meet their most basic human needs while they cope with a crisis – otherwise, there’s a chance that poverty could become permanent and entrenched.
