Why your support is so important.
“…summer should mean fun, not worrying about food.”
“During the summer months, 1 in 6 children don’t know where their next meal is coming from,” said Donna Ragan, Marketing & Communications Manager from Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina “Programs like our mobile pantry and Kids Café aim to provide that next meal for families because summer should mean fun, not worrying about food. ”
Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina annually distributes almost 60 million pounds of food and other household items throughout their 19 county service region. 23 million pounds of that distribution is fresh produce, dairy and meat.
Here’s what you can donate.
Suggested donations include canned fish or meat, peanut butter, canned low-sodium soups or stews, canned or dry beans, canned fruits in juice or canned low-sodium vegetables.

Join us for a food drive!
Please join us at The Beacon Drive-In (255 John B White Sr. Blvd.) on June 6, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.! There will be food, music and prizes for those who bring food donations.
And it doesn’t stop there…
In addition to accepting donations during deliveries and at local partner restaurants, we’re also donating 10 percent of June sales (up to $5,000) from the Spartanburg community to Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. Each dollar donated provides seven pounds worth of food for families in need.
We are excited to support the Spartanburg community and invite our neighbors to do the same by participating in our End Summer Hunger Food Drive. If you’d like to help, get started now.
