Food banks and pantries in Darlington County.

Most of the food pantries in Darlington County are located at churches, as noted below. They will generally be very locally focused and only assist members of the immediate parish area. However they may offer referrals, and there are also some other food assistance programs to try, including at non-profits and social service agencies.

Due to the limited focus and size of the pantries, they are open limited hours. They will be noted below, or individuals should call in advance. Also the selection of items may be limited. What may be available in Darlington County includes the following.

-Canned meat, tuna, beef, spam, and chicken.
-Peanut Butter and Jelly.
-Beans, pasta, dried food.
-Cereal, milk, dairy items.
-Baby formula, diapers, and items for new moms.
-Canned or box juice.
-Local Meals on Wheels services.

Much more may be given out too. Pantries may also have household cleaning supplies, paper products, and more. Some have clothes closets. Or families can also get referred to SNAP food stamp application sites.
