DHG Ramps Up Annual Canned Food Drive

Dixon Hughes Goodman is hosting their annual "Count the Cans" campaign June 14th-June 24th. The local Certified Public Accountants and Advisors made a tremendous impact last year in Greenville County as they donated more than $11,000 and 1,000 pounds of non-perishable food to Loaves & Fishes as part of their corporate "Count the Cans" campaign. The canned food drive is heavily relied on by the pantries Loaves & Fishes serves. The summer canned food drive is important since pantry shelves are receiving less donations this time of year than they traditionally do during the holiday months despite the constant need in their communities.  This effort by DHG and it's employees is vital to ending summer hunger in Greenville County and is greatly appreciated by the thousands of lives it impacts every...

Food Waste?  Is it really waste? Truck-to-Table collaborative dinner suggests not.

Greenville, SC – Loaves & Fishes and Project Host sought to answer the question what happens to perfectly edible food that would otherwise be wasted? The two organizations answered the question with their celebrated, successful and longstanding collaboration during the Truck to Table Community Dinner this month. 60 invited guests enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by Project Host’s culinary students using only ingredients included in that day’s food donations received from Loaves & Fishes. Students who participate in the free culinary job-skills program are typically unemployed or underemployed, often due to barriers such as lack of education or homelessness. The students more than met the Iron Chef style challenge by creating tasty dishes from beef bourgeoisie to homemade ice cream covering a delectable cinnamon bun! “It was amazing to have...

Greenville Community Helps Fund Food Rescue Truck

GREENVILLE, SC (September 17, 2018) – Loaves & Fishes is Greenville’s food rescue organization that is solely responsible for rescuing 2.3 million pounds of food in 2017 and delivering it to nearly 100 agencies feeding the hungry in our Greenville community. They do all of this with a fleet of three trucks and have recently replaced their aging produce truck thanks to generous community partners. In May, Loaves & Fishes was awarded $50,000 by Greenville Women Giving, which contributed to the fleet replacement project, but they still needed $20,000 to cover the remainder of the replacement truck. That was exactly how much Loaves & Fishes received from The SPINX Company as a beneficiary of the 2018 SPINX Golf Charity Classic. "Greenville Women Giving and SPINX are true partners to the nonprofit...
