You can help make healthy food available.
FoodShare South Carolina launched in 2015 as an alternative source of produce for patients struggling to manage their chronic illness through a diet based on the high cost of produce. Our Fresh Food Box is available for $20 to cash recipients and thanks to the South Carolina SNAP Incentive program, Healthy Bucks, it can be purchased for $5 with a SNAP EBT card. After years of successfully packing and distributing these boxes, FoodShare has expanded to research and education with multiple programs aimed at addressing the social determinants of health and barriers to food accessibility. Our statewide network uses a community-based approach that demonstrates that FoodShare is more than just a box of food. Our goal is to improve health conditions of those in underserved areas of the state through food access and work together to dismantle oppressive systems that both cause and hold poverty in place.
