Food for the Soul will conduct its third annual sod sales fundraising campaign at the Farmers’ Market each Saturday from spring through fall to support its soup kitchen and emergency shelter.

Beginning with market opening on Saturday, April 6th, and continuing through market season end in December, Food for the Soul will sell sod donated by Modern Turf of Rembert at $1.50 per square.

That price reflects the average cost of a meal served at the facility, located at 110A East DeKalb St. in Camden.

The public is invited to visit Food for the Soul at the Market each Saturday in its booth from 8 a.m. until noon.

Kim Gill, vice-chair of the board of directors for Food for the Soul, commented on the campaign.

"Community support is critically important to the success of our ministry. We encourage the public to visit us at the Market and buy sod for their lawn projects while helping us feed the hungry and shelter the homeless in Kershaw County," Gill said.

William Cox, chairman of the board, commented on the generosity of the donor.

"Hank and Mary Kerfoot of Modern Turf are once again generously providing sod for our fundraising project at the Farmers’ Market. The support of Hank and Mary and others like them is what allows us to continue to serve the people of Kershaw County," Cox said.

The vision for Food for the Soul is to end hunger and homelessness in Kershaw County.

The Food for the Soul Center is open to the public 9 a.m until 2 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays.

Visit the Center or call 432-4771 to make a donation or to volunteer. Visit online at or on Facebook and Twitter.
