National Hunger Awareness Day 2019 is observed on Thursday, June 6, 2019
Lowcountry Therapy Center will be holding a food drive on June 6th in observance of National Hunger Awareness Day.
40 million people face hunger in the U.S. today — including more than 12 million children and nearly five million seniors. Hunger knows no boundaries — it touches every community in the U.S., including ours.
This year, Bluffton Self Help will distribute more than 50 tons of food to the hungry in Bluffton and the immediate surrounding area. That amount will provide approximately 2,500 meals for our neighbors in need.
According to Bluffton Self Help, they are "in dire need of several items including canned meats (Chicken, Tuna), Rice, Pasta Sauce and Canned Fruits" and Help of Beaufort said "Because we are a Wellness Pantry we highly encourage nonperishable fruits and vegetables, canned protein like tuna, chicken, and salmon. Also, low sugar cereals, oatmeal, grits. We would not want any candy or cakes."
