Publix to partner with the Lowcountry Food Bank to bring fresh produce to neighbors in need
CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - In partnership with Publix, the Lowcountry Food Bank will host a Fresh For All, food distribution to fight hunger in our community.
The distribution will take place in the same community where Publix is currently building their new downtown Charleston store, according to a spokeswoman for the Lowcountry Food Bank.
The event will take place on Tuesday at 10 a.m. at the Arthur W. Christopher Community Center. The community center is located at 265 Fishburne Street in downtown Charleston.
A Fresh For All is a client choice, farmer's market-style distribution.
"On average, a Fresh For All shares about 10,000 pounds of produce with about 200 families in the Lowcountry. Fresh For All distributions are a great way to get fresh produce to neighborhoods who lack access." Hailey Ezekiel, the Communications Manager with the Lowcountry Food Bank said.
The Lowcountry Food Bank serves the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina and aims to distribute more than 26 million pounds of food each year.
The Lowcountry Food Bank is a clearinghouse for donated food products that are distributed to a network of nearly 300 member feeding agencies including soup kitchens, homeless shelters and emergency food pantries.
The Lowcountry Food Bank is a member of Feeding America and is committed to educating the public about the problems of and solutions to domestic hunger as well as advocating on behalf of our neighbors who experience hunger. For more information, please visit http://www.lowcountryfoodbank.org.
