Food Pantry

The Edisto Island Food Pantry serves an average of eighty (80) island families with monthly deliveries of food to help support their dietary needs for approximately one week. This food is delivered to augment depleted SNAP benefits. The Pantry is located in and governed by The Presbyterian Church on Edisto Island, but with considerable monetary support and volunteers coming from Island churches, organizations, and individuals. In partnership with The Lowcountry Food Bank, the Pantry is able to maximize these monetary gifts and donations, ensuring we can provide wholesome supplemental food to all our families.

We would hope that no one will go to sleep hungry. Therefore the Pantry also serves as an Emergency Food source to anyone who is hungry. The Pantry is available, generally, from 9AM to 2PM Monday through Friday. But please call ahead to make an appointment as personnel are limited (843-869-2326).

The Pantry also operates Fresh Express, which is an outreach to the community that brings free fresh produce to all island residents. Fresh Express occurs the third Thursday of each month beginning at 1PM while supplies last.
