Orangeburg County free food pantries.

When facing hunger, there are as many as 10 food pantries in Orangeburg County South Carolina that residents can turn to for help. Each of the locations has their own terms and conditions in place, but when qualified, residents can be given assistance in many different forms. The pantries, government offices, or charities may have free food, holiday meals, applications to food stamps, and even financial aid.

Almost all of the food banks in Orangeburg County are part of Feeding America and/or church based groups. However there are some exceptions, such as the Community Action Agency (CAA).
