Duke Energy Partners With South Carolina Organizations For A Monthlong Feeding Initiative

Duke Energy is partnering with several local active community partners each week in November for a month-long feeding program in South Carolina.

The program aims to support organizations in South Carolina that work to address food insecurity and inequity across the state. Approximately 50 food programs will receive roughly $250,000 as part of this initiative leading up to Thanksgiving Day.

“Finding healthy and affordable fresh food is a challenge for many of our friends and neighbors across the state,” said Mike Callahan, Duke Energy South Carolina state president.

This week’s highlighted organizations are FoodShare South Carolina and Mill Village Farms.

FoodShare South Carolina will receive $50,000 from the Duke Energy Foundation to help 13 community-based organizations across the state to deliver more than 63,000 pounds of fresh produce in 4,200 family food boxes by November.

Mill Village Farms, based in Greenville, produces these fresh food boxes, acquiring much of the produce from local, sustainably managed farms that provide jobs and fresh produce to people living in food deserts.

FoodShare South Carolina will also use the funds to distribute food boxes in Cherokee, Chesterfield, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lancaster, Laurens, Lee, Marlboro, Spartanburg, Union, Williamsburg, and York counties.
