It takes a village to feed the hungry. No that’s not the original quote but it sure seems appropriate when you visit us around 11am and see the volume of people lined up to deliver meals. If you know what a LeMans start is to an old race…It seems like we should have an announcer in the background “And THEY”RE OFF!”
Truth be told, there’s no better day than one where you deliver to the homebound. You see the smile and are certain of the difference you make just by bringing a meal.
What does it take to be a volunteer? Besides the obvious compassion and love of community- you only need to be present to lend a hand. Contact Leslie Iannace, our volunteer coordinator, at 843-873-8224 or fill out the form at the end of this page, to volunteer or to find out more about volunteer opportunities with us. Our volunteers carry many jobs in helping to end hunger in Summerville. We’re sure Leslie can find one to fit your time and talent which you’ll enjoy!
