Pantry Details, hours, photos, information: Sandalwood Community Food Pantry
The Sandalwood Community Food Pantry is a non-denominational, non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization, helping families make ends meet by supplementing their monthly groceries in times of need. Established in 2009, the SCFP was formed when 1 woman decided to address the growing issue of hunger in children at the Sandalwood Terrace Apts. on Hilton Head Island. The objective was to create a central collection and distribution center on Hilton Head Island.
What We Do
The SCFP provides perishable and non-perishable groceries to eligible Beaufort County residents. Groceries are collected from a variety of sources: Second Helpings is our largest source making us their #1 distributor, Houses of Worship, businesses & schools, community service programs, local groups and organizations, individuals and families. The Food Pantry is one of 345 agencies who partner with the Lowcountry Food Bank of South Carolina, where we purchase food whenever donations run low in order to maintain our goal of providing reliable assistance to the community. We distribute groceries to: Senior Citizens, low-income working families, recently unemployed workers, and other individuals in crisis. Groceries are delivered throughout the county to those who are disabled and cannot get to us.
Groceries are provided every Tues. and Friday at noon, to anyone in need from Beaufort County. Individuals arrive to the pantry where an Intake Volunteer assists them in filling out an application and interviews the client to help us assess their need. Our pantry is set up as a Client Choice Program, where clients are allowed to select the food they want from the shelves as if they were in a supermarket. The amount they can take is determined by the size of their family. They may continue to use the pantry as long as there is need.
