Trident United Way & GrowFood Carolina: helping kids & farmers

Trident United Way volunteers recently helped pack boxes to provide hope and nutrition for local school children.

The volunteers gathered at GrowFood Carolina’s downtown Charleston warehouse to fill up boxes with locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables. From sweet potatoes to apples and collards, the fresh produce boxes go to local children at economically challenged schools across the Tri-County.

“It’s really all about supporting local agriculture and supporting local farmers to maintain and help support a healthy rural landscape,” said Anthony Mirisciotta, General Manager of GrowFood Carolina.

Trident United Way proudly supports the program with a grant of $133,490, which goes to provide nearly a dozen schools and Head Start locations 140,000 pounds of food. The investment is made possible with funding from the Duke Endowment to Healthy Tri-County coalition to support the Healthy People, Healthy Carolinas initiative.
