When most people think of Edisto, they think of the sun drenched beach and how afternoons slip away during long naps spent on a hammock. The days usually end after a big dinner feast full of the luscious local vegetables, freshly caught seafood, and a side of creamy grits or potatoes. But imagine being here on Edisto and knowing all that goodness exists but being unable to afford it. That is a sad reality for many people living on the island.
Luckily, generous locals and vacationers can help fill the growling stomachs of less fortunate people by donating unopened and non-perishable items to the snow cone stand in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot.

Some of the items that are the most needed include:
- Canned meats
- Canned vegetables
- Boxed macaroni dinners
- Canned fruits
- Powdered Milk
- Powdered Drinks
More than 50 families count on the contributions made by the community so that they can feed themselves and their families. Consider making their lives a little easier by picking up a few extra cans of food the next time you do your grocery shopping.
