Rescuing Food for Our Neighbors in Need.
We are the only food rescue organization serving Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton counties. Our volunteers pick up food from food donors and deliver it at no cost to our agency partners, who provide it directly to people in need.
GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE. We rely on the generosity of people like you to rescue food and prevent food waste in our community.
Help us feed the hungry with a sponsorship, food drive, or fundraising event.
The Need is Great
An estimated 40% of food is wasted. Nearly all (97%) of wasted food ends up in landfills, becoming the single largest component of municipal solid waste and a large source of methane emissions.
At the same time, one in nine people, and one in seven children in South Carolina, struggles with hunger. An estimated 60% of South Carolina’s children qualify for free or reduced-price school lunches. In some towns, this number can reach 100%.
Our Agency Partners
We partner with 51 local food pantries, soup kitchens, family and senior programs throughout Beaufort, Jasper, and Hampton counties that serve people in need. All of the food we distribute is provided free of charge, so that these organizations are able to focus their resources on helping their clients break the cycle of poverty.
1 in 7 children
in our area are food insecure.
Who we help
Second Helpings and our Agency Partners serve a culturally diverse range of populations in a variety of ways. These include soup kitchens, food pantries, homeless shelters, shelters for victims of domestic violence, Boys and Girls Clubs, senior centers, and more. Our focus with each of these groups is to serve the greatest number of people in an area while avoiding duplication of services.
Thanks to our food donors
