Resources for Second Helpings Agency Partners

Thank you for all you do to further our common goal of fighting hunger and food waste!

As a follow-on to our 2023 Agency Conferences, we are providing a collection of reference materials.  We hope this information will be useful and even inspire a new idea to reach more of the people in our community that need help.

If you have suggestions – or materials to contribute – please email us at

For more than 20,000 people in Beaufort, Jasper, and Hampton counties, hunger has a local address.  Let’s work together to find and help more of them than ever before.

Agency Directory – contact, share ideas and challenges, and perhaps collaborate with other agencies in your area.

Useful Reference Tools: to help make agencies more effective and their days a little easier.

Outreach Examples – to inspire.  Here is a copy of the bilingual flyer produced by St. Andrew By-The-Sea to publicize the food available from the South Island agencies of Hilton Head.

Here is a resource guide provided by St. Francis of the Sea for assisting clients who need help with more than food.  It is Hilton Head-centric but contains resources from around Beaufort and Jasper counties as well.

U.S. Census Quickfacts provides a great deal of demographic information by towns, counties, and ZIP codes.

S.C. Statewide Civil Legal Needs Assessment from the SC Access to Justice Commission. This was provided by Antioch Educational Center’s Jackie O’Bannon with the following note:  “It has some very interesting data on homelessness, rent, mortgage, etc. for each county.  I use it quite often for a reference when I need data to substantiate the need for our region.”
