Meeting Basic Needs - Food
In light of COVID-19, United Way of Anderson County quickly created a collaborative between 10 agencies addressing hunger in our community. We know residents have faced reduced hours, job-loss, and challenges to their financial stability. Extra assistance meeting this Basic Need is crucial for this difficult time.
We convened a Food Collaborative between 10 agencies who address hunger in our community:
Anderson Emergency Kitchen, AIM, Clemson Community Care, Good Neighbor Cupboard, Meals on Wheels, Second Harvest Food Bank, Senior Solutions, South Main Mercy Center, the LOT Project, and the Salvation Army
We continued our support of front line agencies who address hunger in our grant allocations that span the entire fiscal year knowing that meeting Basic Needs will be a top priority of our organization in this challenging time.
