SALUDA—The Saluda Pop-Up Pantry has received $1,600 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation to help nourish neighbors experiencing hunger. 

The Feeding the Hungry grant supports community feeding partners by helping neighbors increase their access to nutritious food and providing nutrition education to eliminate health risks for those experiencing food insecurity. 

The Saluda Pantry has been experiencing a significant increase in the number of individuals and families needing help since last year. Many are experiencing food insecurity for the first time. This grant will allow it to purchase food items from other sources when MANNA is unable to offer because of supply chain issues. The Saluda Pantry is grateful for the grant which will allow us to continue serving those who need our help.
