Our basic food bag contains canned soups, vegetables, and fruit, as well as cereals and juice as available. In addition, we are able to give out meat, bread, and fresh items as they are donated. Each week is different, depending upon what is available.
Some of our bagged items are free from the USDA through Harvest Hope. Much of the rest are purchased at a low cost from Harvest Hope, or contributed by members of the churches.
We receive donations each week from Loaves and Fishes, giving us a variety of breads and fresh items from area grocery stores and restaurants. We feel blessed to have Loaves and Fishes deliveries. They are making sure food does not go to waste in Greenville, when there are so many in need.
Sample bag of food is usually a combination of fresh and canned goods.
