COMMODITY FOOD SUPPLEMENTAL PROGRAM (CFSP)
Mobile Food Pantry
The CFSP is most commonly known as the "Senior Box" program. This program is administered through the Department of Agriculture. Food boxes are distributed monthly and serves eligible seniors 60+ years of age.
The H.O.P.E Pantry stocks food donated by local grocery stores. Participants of this program receive both perishable and non-perishable food items.
The Mobile Food Pantry consists of four mobile sites in rural Greenwood County to meet our residents at the point of their needs.

-Mt. Sinai AME Church
-The Connection, a campus of St. Mark UMC (Coronaca)
-Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church (South Greenwood)
Sites are operational quarterly during the months of February, May, August, and November.
The Weekend Backpack Program provides children at risk of hunger with a supply of easy to open, nutritious food for the weekend. Select elementary and primary schools in Greenwood School District 50, 51, and 52 are served.
We work closely with school facilitators to identify students in need of weekend backpacks.
