A crash course in changing the world.
Even though South Carolina and Charleston are in the United States, there is still much food insecurity and hunger to be combated. In South Carolina the food insecurity rate is almost 19%, the child food insecurity rate is 27%, the poverty rate is 16%, the child poverty rate is 23%, and unemployment is at around 11% statewide. There is a real need for help and change. Two of the leaders in combating hunger are the Low Country Food Bank and Crisis Ministries, both of which I have volunteered for. The Food Bank distributes food to families in need, and Crisis Ministries provides meals, shelter, and help to the homeless. They are both doing a great work in a place in need.
