Georgetown County food pantries.

Families that need food in the Georgetown County area can get help. Assistance is provided by food pantries that are located in the county as well centers in neighboring towns and cities. The non-profits will generally serve anyone from the region, and if an individual can't make it to a pantry or meal site, then Meals on Wheels may help fill the need of that client.

With about 1 in 5 kids facing hunger in Georgetown County, the pantries do focus on feeding the youth and directing them to long term benefits as well. This may be free USDA school meals or SNAP food stamps, and children may also be given free Christmas gifts or holiday meals, including at Thanksgiving. This same approach is used for other requests as well; the food pantries provide short term support while the client is directed to some type of long term benefit program. Whether it is employment, SNAP, or something else, assistance is offered.
