Harvest Hope kicks off ‘It’s Scary to be Hungry’ food drive

COLUMBIA, SC (WOLO)– Harvest Hope is kicking off the ‘It’s Scary to be Hungry’ food drive. During the month of October, community members are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items at any of their branches, or you can shop the Amazon Wish List here: https://amzn.to/3a7lUvA.

The food drive aims to raise awareness and collect donations to help feed children facing hunger in the Midlands.

“Our youth have big dreams, but they can’t change the world if they’re hungry,” says Erinn Rowe, Harvest Hope CEO. “They need us, and fighting hunger is not something that Harvest Hope or any food bank can do alone.”
