America's Second Harvest Partnership
In 2021, Sea Island partnered with America’s Second Harvest and presented a community challenge where Sea Island would match any funds raised, which resulted in a $500,000 grant from the company. With these funds, ASH was able to break ground on a new 50,000 sq. ft. facility, offering the ability to house a larger community center and expand the programming it can offer, including the distribution of hot meals. This branch alone serves six counties and partners with 78 different agencies to collect and distribute more than 2.2 million pounds of food, per year.
