BLUFFTON, SC - Bluffton Self Help will once again welcome in-market shoppers later this month in the Wellness Food Pantry. After a year of serving neighbors in a Drive-thru Pantry, Bluffton Self Help is thrilled to welcome neighbors back into a safe, friendly atmosphere where they can shop for their own groceries. Bluffton Self Help will continue to provide weekly grocery deliveries to homebound neighbors and the Drive-thru Pantry we will continue on Mondays from 4pm-6pm. Bluffton Self Help strives to meet neighbors where they are and has always provided a dignified shopping experience for all neighbors. “We know it is hard to ask for help, we are here to make it as easy as possible with dignity and respect in a client-centered environment.” – says Bluffton Self Help’s Executive Director, Kim Hall
The Wellness Food Pantry provides more than 500,000 pounds of healthy groceries, hygiene products, diapers, cleaning products and special holiday meals each year to more than 1,100 households who work or live in Bluffton. There are no income requirements, it truly is a market for all. Neighbors can walk the aisles to shop for fresh produce, milk, dairy, eggs, meat, bread and canned goods. The only difference between the Wellness Food Pantry and a grocery store is neighbors do not need their wallet to check-out. All opportunities at Bluffton Self Help are free of charge. “When I get home, I put my groceries away and feel good that I am able to provide a healthy meal to my kids. I never have to buy cereal and it is my kids favorite breakfast.” says one Bluffton Self Help neighbor.
Drive-thru Pantry Hours: Monday 4pm-6pm
