Fresh Food

Volunteers from Belmont Baptist Church work on distributing fresh food to Westville area residents on March 19, the day the United Way of Kershaw County’s fifth Mobile Nutrition Center distribution site opened at the church. The Mobile Nutrition Center has grown from three to five distribution sites over the past year with other locations in Cassatt, Elgin, Mount Pisgah and the Knights Hill community. Volunteers from the church were enthusiastic as they gathered around Mobile Nutrition Center Director Scott Crandall to learn how the food distribution process works. More than 80 people filled the church’s reception hall to celebrate this major milestone for the Mobile Nutrition Center. Members of United Way of Kershaw County staff spoke about what led to the start of the Mobile Nutrition Center as well as the partnerships that helped make it what it is today. Luckstone, a mining company in the Westville area, donated the funding to make this possible. The Mobile Nutrition Center not only delivers food to the hungry, but is providing rural Kershaw County residents access to fresh healthy foods. Hundreds of pounds of fresh produce, meats and canned goods were given out to more than 30 Westville residents on March 19 who do not have access to nutritious foods.
