SC has the second highest percentage of hungry people in the nation. Serving as a link between local farms and community organizations that help feed the hungry, Fields to Families gleans both fields and leftovers at local Farmers Markets. The goal of Fields to Families is to deliver these gathered fresh crops to food pantries, soup kitchens, Meals on Wheels, shelters and churches to feed hungry people. While most organizations feed the hungry with canned and packaged goods, Fields to Families focuses on improving the nutrition of hungry citizens in our area by coordinating the distribution of fresh, healthful produce – fruits and vegetables. Even though fruits and vegetables are considered the foundation of a healthy diet, hungry people almost never have access to them. Volunteers for Fields to Families are mobilized to farms and other areas to gather the fresh fruits and veggies for distribution; but don’t worry, green thumb or no green thumb, volunteers of all kinds are needed! In addition to volunteers traveling from site to site, Fields to Families is starting a large garden (farm) in Moncks Corner on donated property to grow their own food!
