Fighting Hunger Locally

Fighting hunger isn’t just about sending food to foreign countries. As part of our local efforts to fight hunger we ask that you bring non-perishable food items with you to Annual Conference. In addition, any contributions that exceed the $86,000 goal will be given to local hunger ministries through the South Carolina Conference Board of Global Ministries.
