Programs and Services
Every year, millions of Americans go hungry. Food for the Soul combats the rise in hunger in Kershaw County with various on-site and remote meal services. A hot lunch is served from the front door of the shelter Tuesday through Friday from 12 p.m.-1 p.m. Overnight residents receive a simple, hot dinner nightly at 6:30 p.m.
Every day, there are men, women and children who do not know where they will sleep, often at no fault of their own. Food for the Soul’s overnight sheltering facility is available year-round to victims of domestic violence, flood or fire, those who have been evicted and those who simply have nowhere else to go. Food for the Soul offers a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment seven days per week on a first-come, first-serve basis. The shelter is available from 7 p.m.-7 a.m.
Overnight residents receive:
A hot meal served at 6:30 p.m.
A clean cot, bedding and pajamas
Hygiene products and access to a shower
Morning coffee and breakfast
If you are looking for a place to stay, please bring a form of identification. One of our staff members will walk you through an initial intake process and help you get settled in for the night.
Love on the Go
We’re hitting the road! Food for the Soul’s mobile feeding program, Love on the Go, provides free, hot meals to those in need all over the county. You can find our food truck and friendly faces at Boykin Park every Wednesday and Kirkwood Park every Friday. Volunteers from Lugoff’s Friendship Baptist Church serve hot meals at the church on Monday evenings. Over at Blaney Baptist Church in Elgin, volunteers prepare hot meals to-go every Thursday night.
