Having worked for may years as a grants professional in a small rural county in SC, I have seen first hand the good that is Harvest Hope. Harvest Hope using their ability to buy in bulk to help the smaller rural food banks buy more food for their dollar. Harvest Hope even delivers to the smaller food banks. Some of whom would not be able to operate if it were not for Harvest Hope. I like what the do so much I have become a donor. In stead of giving presents to some of my friends I am going to make a donation to Havest Hope in their name. BRAVO HARVEST HOPE BRAVO!!!

Harvest Hope does such a wonderful job giving people hope when their lives seem hopeless. The organizers are always working hard to figure out how to make a dollar stretch even farther and they're always friendly and willing to help or just listen. This organization fills a much-needed void on our area.

Harvest Hope is there to help those in need when they have no other place to go. They work hard to make sure people are fed. I've enjoyed volunteering there and it makes me feel like I'm helping someone in need.

Harvest Hope serves 20 counties with quality food and non-perishable food items. One in four children goes to bed hungry every night, so please help Harvest Hope feed hungry people. One out out of every four clients is a child. Typically, their parents have to decide between whether to buy food or pay their medical bills, rent or utilities. South Carolina is number two in the nation in food hardship, so please help us help others!

Harvest Hope not only provides a wonderful service to the community, but it is also a good investment for the dollar. 98 cents of every dollar donated goes back into direct service.

Harvest Hope works with over 450 nonprofit partners in 20 counties in SC making sure none of our citizens go hungry. With the economy and job loss, SC has been hit hard and food banks are almost always a persons last option becasue of the stigma and shame it sometimes carry. All of the partners work hard to make sure clients in need receive a heloing hand, and most of all H.O.P.E!

The joy and confidance that HHFB can provide is evident in the faces of the clients that enter and leave with food.
Sometimes, just the smallest thing, like a roll of toilet paper, travel size toothpast.... can lift someons spitits.
HHFB is here to provide not only food, but a smile and a hug when and if needed.

Harvest Hope has fed so many people that I know and speak to on a daily basis -- from all walks of life. They provide emergency, high-quality food and there's just nothing else like it around.

When I was a kid and my mom needed emergency food, we were given very little help, with little or no variety. While we were thankful for what we did get, I can't help but see the great contrast between what Harvest Hope gives out and what other organizations give out.

My barber recently needed their assistance and he was so impressed with the service and the integrity of the personnel that he told everyone in the barber shop how special this organization is. Everyone present agreed with his sentiment. This is just one of many, many examples of satisfied clients that I run into in our community everday.

God bless Harvest Hope! :)
