Agency Partners

Second Helpings partners with organizations and churches that serve people in need. Our Agency Partners include soup kitchens, food pantries, homeless shelters, shelters for victims of domestic violence, Boys and Girls Clubs, senior centers, and more.

Because of our donors, we provide food to 55 Agency Partners throughout Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton counties. Organizations must be a 501(c)3 organization, serve those in need, or be a church in order to qualify as an Agency Partner. Prospective agencies submit an application to our office and a site visit is scheduled.

Once an agency is accepted as a partner, it will be added to the schedule depending on food availability and area served. Staff and volunteers perform annual site visits, conduct food safety training, and review reports from all of our Agency Partners. We re-qualify each Agency Partner every year, to ensure that they provide the highest quality of service and food to the public.

While we try to help as many agencies as possible, requests far exceed our capabilities. Our focus is to serve the greatest number of people in an area while avoiding duplication of services.

We provide food to our Agency Partners free of charge, and do not receive any funding from them. As the only agency in Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton counties authorized to rescue food, we provide a single point of contact for our Food Donors and enable our Agency Partners to focus on local food distribution efforts.
