Harvest Hope Food Bank is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established April 4, 1981 by a group of concerned individuals, who believed the problem of hunger was the community’s responsibility. Begun as an Emergency Food Box program, Harvest Hope has grown into a regional food distribution program providing food, support and hope to thousands of hungry people in the Midlands, Greater Greenville and Pee Dee regions of South Carolina.
The mission of Harvest Hope Food Bank is to provide for the needs of hungry people by gathering and sharing quality food with dignity, compassion and education. We accomplish this goal by collecting, storing and distributing food and related items to more than 400 qualified, non-profit agencies engaged in feeding the needy, elderly, disabled, and seriously ill families and children throughout counties in central South Carolina. Today, Harvest Hope Food Bank serves 20 counties: Calhoun, Chester, Chesterfield, Clarendon, Darlington, Dillon, Fairfield, Florence, Greenville, Kershaw, Laurens, Lee, Lexington, Marion, Marlboro, Newberry, Orangeburg, Richland, Saluda, and Sumter Counties in South Carolina.
