Harvest Hope Launches It's Scary to be Hungry Food Drive

October 5, 2021

COLUMBIA, S.C. (October 5, 2021) – In the spirit of Halloween, Harvest Hope Food Bank is kicking off a “It’s Scary to be Hungry” food drive in hopes of raising awareness and collecting donations to help feed children facing hunger in the Midlands.

During the month of October, community members are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items such as microwavable pop-top Chef Boyardee, Easy Mac cups, Ramen noodle cups, Rice-A-Roni cups, individual oatmeal and grits packets, fruit cups and granola bars to help Harvest Hope feed children in need.

“Our youth have big dreams, but they can’t change the world if they’re hungry,” says Erinn Rowe, Harvest Hope CEO. “They need us, and fighting hunger is not something that Harvest Hope or any food bank can do alone.”

Community members looking to donate nonperishable food items can drop off donations at these locations.

Donations can also be made through Harvest Hope’s Amazon Wishlist and online. For a donation of $15, you can provide weekend meals for three children in need.

If your organization or business would like to host a “It’s Scary to be Hungry” food drive or be a collection point, please contact Harvest Hope at 803-254-4432 x 1125 or by sending an email.
