Local News

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – A Spartanburg healthy food ministry that helps supply fresh food to pantries in Spartanburg through their gleaning program is fighting hunger with a virtual fundraiser this week.

Ruth’s Gleanings executive director said their demand in their Foodshare program has quadrupled since the beginning of the pandemic.

The program distributes 10 tons of food monthly, according to organizers. That feeds more than 600 families and helps to fill pantry shelves.

Harp and Shamrock Croft is just one of the local farms working with Ruth’s Gleanings to help provide food for families who are struggling during the pandemic. But there are other farms and distributors working together to help feed those in need.

 Ruth’s Gleanings delivers food that we source from farms like Harp and Shamrock Croft in Wellford, S.C.

The virtual fundraiser will be held on Thursday at 7 p.m.

During the online event, you’ll meet program participants, talk with farmers and find out how to donate.

To get food from the Foodshare program, call (864) 586-2840.
