The Lowcountry Food Bank leads the fight against hunger throughout the ten coastal counties of South Carolina and is instrumental in ensuring many members of the Charleston community don't go hungry. In 2019, the Lowcountry Food Bank distributed 32,156,354 pounds of food to inividuals and families across the state.
The CBI Charleston office wanted to do something this holiday season that would support their local community. The team decided to take a day and volunteer at the Food Bank. While they were there they sorted, organized and packed food donations to be passed out to Charleston County School Students who are in need. By the end of the day, the CBI Team had packaged 580 boxes to be distributed to these students and their families.
Kerby Teller, Senior Vice President and Market Leader in Charleston says, “I’m so grateful for my CBI Team and their continuous passion for serving those in our community. I could not be prouder of the work we did at the Lowcountry Food Bank, and I’m so glad we were able to make such a positive impact for our neighbors in need during this holiday season.”
The holiday season is one of the busiest times for local Food Banks. If you are in the Charleston area and want to learn more about how you can support the Lowcountry Food Bank, visit their website at https://www.lowcountryfoodbank.org/.
