Lowcountry Food Bank On the Way to $5 Million Goal with Over $2.5 Million Raised
Date:6/4/2008

Growing Forward Campaign rolled out in phases to purchase new 60,000 sq. ft

facility

CHARLESTON, S.C., June 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lowcountry is facing a startling threat: Hunger! In the effort to continue its vital mission of feeding and educating the poor and hungry of South Carolina, the Lowcountry Food Bank launched a $5 million Growing Forward Campaign to find a new home. After completing Phase I of the campaign by raising $2.5 million, the Lowcountry Food Bank was able to acquire its new 60,000 square foot facility to house its expanded distribution center. This centralized headquarters location will serve 14 percent of Lowcountry residents who are at risk for going hungry and the nearly 55,000 children who go hungry in coastal South Carolina each day.

"As the costs for the basic sustenance for a family continues to rise, the Lowcountry Food Bank is playing an ever increasing role in combating hunger throughout the Greater Charleston Region," said North Charleston Mayor R. Keith Summey. "An organization with such an overwhelmingly successful capital campaign is confirmation of the Lowcountry Food Bank's resounding support from the community. I am excited to see the Lowcountry Food Bank's new facility opening in North Charleston, centrally located, to best serve the Lowcountry's residents in need."

Conveniently located along the South Carolina coast, the Lowcountry Food Bank's new Community Food and Nutrition Center is nearly twice the size of the organization's current 37,000 square foot location. In 2007, the Lowcountry Food Bank distributed over nine million pounds of food throughout the 10 coastal county areas of South Carolina. With this new facility, the organization will be able to reach their goal of distributing 18 million pounds of food a year by 2013, a 93.5 percent increase!

After completing a major renovation, the Community Food and Nutrition Center will house a complete warehouse an
