Did You know?

In addition to providing food to over 700 non-profit partner agencies, SHMETROLINA directly serves our hungry neighbors. 18.3% of our service area population, over 527,000 people, live in poverty including over 188,000 children and over 41,000 seniors.


We are so grateful for your interest in hosting a Fund Drive!

Funds are our greatest need and a wonderful way to multiply your giving! In the big picture, we are able to provide 7 pounds of food into the community for every $1 donated! Funds help keep refrigerated trucks on the road allowing us to pick-up and distribute fresh produce, dairy and meats to our partner agencies. We are also able to purchase products by the pallet - securing much-needed items at great pricing. Funds result in critical and healthy foods reaching more people in need. An online Fund Drive is also an easy and environmentally friendly way to host a Drive.
