Berkeley County SC free food pantries and soup kitchens.

Clients of the food banks, soup kitchens and free emergency food pantries in Berkeley County come from all backgrounds and agencies. Assistance is provided to the low income as well as people facing a one time crisis, such as job loss. There are also food assistance programs for the disabled as well as senior citizens, and those include meals on wheels and congregate feeding sites. Find details on food pantries near you below, or find a free intake phone number at the bottom of the page for Berkeley Count South Carolina.

Some of the non-profits also run a so called benefit bank service. This will allow the household to sign up for public aid such as SNAP food stamps or TANF, both of which can be used to pay for groceries, meals, and other items.
