combatting food deserts with fresh foods

Yonder Field Foundation is working with SC Small Business Development and Orangeburg County Library to bring FoodShare fresh food boxes to Orangeburg. 


"The vision of FoodShare South Carolina is to ensure access to fresh produce for all in our communities. This access is currently limited by where people live, their racial and ethnic background, age, income, and whether or not a family has reliable transportation. That is why we have partnered with reputable organizations in the community to expand the reach of this program."
