Support needed for food banks

  • Thursday, July 24, 2014

Local food banks are preparing for the upcoming school year and the fight against childhood hunger.

BI-LO has launched the Summer Backpack Hunger Relief Program to help the one out of five children in South Carolina who donít know from where their next meal will come.

Customers are encouraged to donate at any store register now through Aug. 19 to help provide meals for healthy minds and bodies to thrive in the classroom.

Every dollar donated will go directly to regional food banks to help fill backpacks with nutritious, fresh foods. Give a dollar. Help fill a backpack.
