From staff reports
St. Helena Island’s New Life Deliverance Temple received $1,000 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation just in time to help feed local neighbors.
The New Life Deliverance Temple Food Bank will use the gift to provide nutrition education and healthy food to the St. Helena Island community.
“We are very grateful for the support given to us by Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation. We plan to offer ‘canning’ and other nutrition classes to show clients how to preserve fresh fruits and vegetables to be enjoyed all year long. This will help to extend food budgets for many families and will teach a traditional skill being slowly lost to the Gullah culture,” Food Bank Administrators Michael and Saundra Renee Smith said in a release. “Our food bank services have increased greatly since Covid-19 going from once monthly service, to now serving daily. We are seeing many more families, especially seniors and children, in need of food support.”
