  • Harvest Hope Food Bank
  • Inter-Faith Food Shuttle
  • Lowcountry Food Bank
  • MANNA Food Bank
  • Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina

“We are thankful for the leadership and financial gift by The Tepper Foundation and David and Nicole Tepper Foundation,” said Feeding the Carolinas Executive Director Mike Darrow. “They recognize how important it is to supply nutritious food to families and seniors during this unprecedented time. Our member food banks are on the frontline addressing hunger for our friends and neighbors in need, and their support and partnership is greatly appreciated.”

The donations will be used to assist with a variety of capital project and programming needs, including building renovations, additional refrigeration space, transportation needs, programming support and innovative pilot programs.
