We are thrilled to be partnering with the Lowcountry Food Bank and ABC Channel 4 for the Food for Families Food Drive to help feed families throughout the summer. During the school year, many families rely on school-provided food to fuel their children; for some, it's the only nutrition they receive. Our goal, through this initiative, is to solve the issue of "summer hunger."
Through August, all 11 South Carolina club locations will be drop-off sites for food items. Bins will be set up at the front desks and anyone (even non-members) is welcome during regular business hours. To make sure children are getting the healthiest food options, we ask that food items are lower in sodium and sugar and mainly fall within the following categories:
- Whole grains
- Canned protein (peanut butter is great!)
- Canned fruits and vegetables
ALL-DAY FOOD DRIVES
