We envision a food system that nourishes all people in our State.
Many communities in South Carolina do not have access or financial resources to eat healthy on a daily basis. Barriers include where people live, age, income, and whether reliable transportation exists. Without healthy options, health risks increase. Bringing fresh produce into our communities is a form of food equity and is part of our mission. Our goal is to enhance the quality of life in our diverse communities by increasing access to fresh, affordable produce and providing quality cooking skills education.
FoodShare South Carolina’s mission is to increase access to, knowledge of and consumption of vegetables and fruit through community-led projects. All of FoodShare’s work is guided by strong beliefs that reflect our commitment to food security and food justice. As a leader in food security locally and statewide in South Carolina, we collaborate with others who share our beliefs to realize our vision of expanding access to nutritious food.
