Reminder: There’s still time to ‘Give Food’
By Dean Campbell
web posted September 22, 2012
COUNTY – Citizens who want to help
their neighbors still have time to participate in the Give Food
Project. The Project, sponsored by Edgefield County Council Chairman
Dean Campbell, is scheduled to end in September.
Proceeds from the Give Food Project will be given to the Johnston Food
Bank, which services many citizens in Edgefield County.
The statistics show the need for food is going up in Edgefield County.
In 2010, the Johnston Food Bank served an average of 116 families per
month. That figure jumped in 2011 to an average of 148 families per
month. So far in 2012, the average has risen to 171 families per month.
About 64 percent of the Food Bank’s clients are from Johnston, with 23
percent from Edgefield, 10 percent from Trenton, and about 3 percent
from North Augusta or Modoc.
Monetary donations can be mailed directly to the Johnston Food Bank c/o
Deborah Henderson, 97 Weaver Rd., Johnston. Citizens can drop food off
at the Food Bank, 505 Academy St., Johnston. (Where the old Mobley
Library used to be located.) Anyone planning to drop off food should
call Henderson at 275-1953 or 480-0678 before doing so.
