Lowcountry Food Bank Celebrates Millionth Meal Milestone with Matching Gift Challenge

The Lowcountry Food Bank (LCFB) will create its one millionth meal on Tuesday,  June 20th in The Zucker Family Production Kitchen. The organization will celebrate the milestone with a matching gift challenge.

The Zuckers have challenged LCFB to raise $50,000 before the one millionth meal is created. If that happens, the family will generously match every donation up to $50,000. You can donate here.

The Zucker Family Production Kitchen is instrumental in a number of Lowcountry Food Bank Programs:

  • Meals for Children
    • Ensures that children throughout our community receive the meals they need to live healthy and happy lives through the Kids Café and Summer Meals programs
  • Food Works Education
    • LCFB provides hands-on culinary experience and education to high school students at-risk of not graduating, many of which live in poverty. While in the program, the students earn credits towards graduation and receive valuable culinary skills that can be used in their future careers.
  • Senior Meals
    • The group works with community partners to serve healthy meals to seniors who experience hunger.

The Lowcountry Food Bank serves the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina. It is a clearinghouse for donated food products that are distributed to a network of nearly 300 member agencies including soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and emergency food pantries.
