Emergency Food Pantry
*Please note changes for the COVID-19 Crisis*
* Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, we have moved all of our Emergency Food Pantry operations outside until further notice. You will receive food assistance in a drive-thru, curbside, pick up. We will evaluate our hours of operations weekly and make changes as needed, so please check back before you return to Harvest Hope.
Beginning Monday, March 30, our Emergency Food Pantries will be open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9 am - 1 pm. We will be closed on Tuesday and Thursday to clean and prepare our food bank for services.
Please be patient and courteous during this time. We appreciate your understanding.
Our Emergency Food Pantries provide those in need with a 5 to 6 day supply of food. Our food package varies depending on donations but usually includes non-perishable and perishable items such as fruit, vegetables, bread, meat, and dried goods. These food packages can provide the basis for balanced and nutritious meals for the families we serve. In addition, we can provide information on other resources available in the community and we assist clients in filling out Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) applications through the SC Benefit Bank.

Emergency Food Pantry FAQ
What do I need to bring with me?
In order to receive government commodity food, we need for you to go to a pantry in the county where you reside. You also must present your current picture ID, with your current physical address and birthdays for everyone in the household. If you do not have a current ID, you will receive donated food only.
How do I get service?
We encourage you to visit the emergency food pantry in the county where you reside. You do not need an appointment. We serve on a first come first serve basis.
Do you deliver?
We are very sorry but at this time we do not have a delivery service.
