Charleston County Public Library and the Lowcounty Food Bank will offer free after-school snacks to kids and teens from 3-5 p.m., Monday – Friday. The collaboration is meant to alleviate child hunger with nutritious foods.

“During difficult times like these, it’s more important than ever to provide help and resources to our community,” said Devon Andrews, community engagement manager. “We are so grateful to the Lowcountry Food Bank for helping us expand this crucial service and provide vital food access to even more families in need throughout Charleston County.” 

The service will be available at five library branches: Cooper River Memorial and Dorchester Road branches in North Charleston, the John L. Dart and Main branches downtown and the St. Paul’s Hollywood branch.

A pilot program of this service was unveiled at the beginning of 2020 at three locations. The recent expansion allows more food to be distributed to kids and teens around the Lowcountry.
