Hyundai, Hyundai of North Charleston Donate $20,000 to Lowcountry Food Bank


The donation will help provide 120,000 meals for residents of the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina.

Hyundai Motor America and Hyundai of North Charleston recently donated $20,000 to the Lowcountry Food Bank of North Charleston in South Carolina to support local hunger relief initiatives in the area. 

The donation is part of Hyundai's corporate social responsibility initiative, Hyundai Hope, which seeks to improve the well-being of society through supporting the health and safety of the community. A ceremonial check was presented to the organization in Charleston.

"At Hyundai, we are committed to our vision of Progress for Humanity, which means giving back to the communities where we live and work," said Brandon Ramirez, director, corporate social responsibility and external relations, Hyundai Motor America. "Food insecurity is a major issue that unfortunately affects many communities. We are proud to join our dealer partner, Hyundai of North Charleston, in supporting the Lowcountry Food Bank to help those experiencing hunger."

The Lowcountry Food Bank combats hunger by increasing the community's access to nutritious foods, particularly for children, seniors and veterans. Serving the 10 coastal counties of South Carolina, the organization partners with more than 230 community-based organizations, pantries, schools, soup kitchens and many more, who then distribute food to neighbors in need. One dollar donated can help make six meals. 

Even more, the Lowcountry Food Bank works with health care partners to identify and address the root causes of hunger and improve people's health outcomes through programs such as nutrition education and mobile pantries. This donation will be able to provide 120,000 meals.

"We are so proud to work with Hyundai Motor America and Hyundai of North Charleston to address the challenges of food insecurity in our community. This will make an enormous difference in the lives of the neighbors we serve," said Brenda Shaw, chief development officer, Lowcountry Food Bank. "Our colleagues at Hyundai understand that more and more families have turned to Lowcountry Food Bank to help put healthy food on the table while we continue to navigate economic inflationary issues and higher food and transportation costs. As we head into the holidays, this gift will help ensure that we are able to procure healthy produce and other food items. We're grateful to Hyundai for their corporate commitment of support in helping alleviate hunger in coastal South Carolina."
