I would like to introduce you to Faith Food Bank located in Williamston, South Carolina. Faith Food Bank is a non-profit 501c3 organization that has been proudly serving our local community since 2007. We started out in the basement of Faith Presbyterian Church, but quickly outgrew that space and now have a building across the street from the church. Our distribution days are Monday and Tuesday every week, and every third Saturday of the month. We serve an average of 772 individuals per month, which consist of 271 families. In 2019 we served 9264 individuals, made up of 3254 families. The shelves of Faith Food Bank are stocked by purchasing food from Second Harvest of Metrolina, and weekly donations of fresh produce and bakery items from Bi-lo in Pelzer. Once a year we receive donations from, a US Postal food drive, the Food Lion Feeds program, and the local Palmetto High School food drive. Volunteers staff our food bank and distribute food to those in need.
We are truly blessed to be able to serve our community and our goal is to continue feeding all individuals that walk through our doors. There are numerous ways individuals or businesses can help. Donation may be sent directly to PO Box 38, Williamston, SC. 29697 and use www.Smile.Amazon.com by selecting Faith Food Bank (Williamston, SC) as your charity. We will soon be accepting donations on our Facebook page. Thank you for your interest in Faith Food Bank. If you have any questions, please contact me at 864-518-1477.
