Did you know that families may not use their food stamps to buy toiletries items?

As household budgets continue to be stretched, toiletry items become even more of a luxury for many families. The Deep Well Project food distribution includes hygiene kits for families.  The kits even include face masks!

Who gets help?  And how?   

Individuals in need of food may call Deep Well, speak with a volunteer to see if certain criteria are met and arrange to come in and shop or receive a food delivery.  We consider a number of pre-determined criteria in approving a client request and even try to accommodate those with special dietary needs.  One simple requirement is a working telephone number to assure someone is home when the delivery is made.  When the request is approved and delivery is required, food is selected from our pantry shelves, bagged and delivered by volunteers.

 

 

Where do we get our food?  

For the most part, it's donated by individuals, merchants and hundreds of local organizations that regularly run food drives for Deep Well — religious institutions, schools, neighborhoods, bridge clubs, civic organizations . . . the list is long.  For example, Panera Bread donates a variety of baked goods regularly.  And fresh vegetables and fruit usually come from the Heritage Farm in Sea Pines or from Second Helpings.  We also receive varying amounts of food from USGA Low Country Food Bank once a month, and then the balance of food needed — around 15% — is purchased by Deep Well.
