Mount Pleasant’s newest gourmet retailer, Southern Season, continues its neighborhood outreach through its Share the Food Foundation. Share the Food fights poverty and hunger and related health issues in communities surrounding Southern Season stores in an effort to make lives in their local neighborhoods better.

Each year, Share the Food gives grants to local organizations. In 2013, four Charleston area non-profits, East Cooper Community Outreach, East Cooper Meals on Wheels, St. Paul’s Summerville and Our Lady of Mercy Community Outreach Services, were awarded grants totaling $20,000.

“When Southern Season opened in the Charleston market, one of the things our team was most excited about was the opportunity for Share the Food to work with the local community,” says Jay White, vice president of new store development and community relations and a Share the Food Foundation board member. “The Lowcountry has a host of amazing non-profits, and we are honored to help support the selected group with grants this year.”
