The employees of Cargo spent a day packaging 1,400 food boxes at Harvest Hope, South Carolina’s largest food bank. The organization provides over 22.6 million meals annually to people in need across the Midlands, Pee Dee, and the Upstate area of South Carolina.
“It was an incredibly rewarding experience to volunteer at Harvest Hope,” said Sallie Hammett, project manager at Cargo, and a member of the agency’s culture committee. “Being able to give even a day to such a worthwhile organization was fulfilling, it also was a great bonding experience for our employees.”
About Harvest Hope
Harvest Hope is on a mission to eliminate hunger and food insecurity in South Carolina. They rescue nutritious food from stores throughout the state and distribute it to food pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens. The organization operates programs that provide food to the most vulnerable citizens – children, seniors, and rural residents who don’t have access to grocery stores. Harvest Hope also runs its own emergency food pantries in Greenville and Columbia where anyone in need can get a week’s supply of groceries for free.
Harvest Hope began in 1981 as the result of a shared vision of business leaders and the faith community, who set out to provide for the hungry in Columbia. Since then, Harvest Hope has increased its mission to feed the hungry across 20 counties in South Carolina.
