Harvest Hope Food Bank of the Pee Dee moving to former Monster facility off I-95

Harvest Hope Food Bank of the Pee Dee will soon be getting a new. The regional food bank will be moving from its present location at the Pee Dee State Farmers Market on West Lucas Street to the 75,000-foot facility off S.C. 327 formerly owned by Monster Worldwide. 

The announcement was made Thursday by Harvest Hope Food Bank Chief Executive Officer Erinn Rowe and Harvest Hope of the Pee Dee Executive Director Nichole Echols at the weekly meeting of the Florence West Rotary Club.

At present, there is no timeline on when the move will take place.

“This will change the way we operate,” said Echols. “Right now we are limited in the amount of space we have. We can do a whole lot more out of this building. The bigger the building, the more food we can provide for our clients. I am really excited. ”  

“This building was designed and created for collaboration,” said Rowe. “It is set up from a technology perspective, from a space perspective, to allow people to come together.  This facility gives us storage space, trucking space, and refrigeration space that we don’t have now.”

Harvest Hope is South Carolina’s largest food bank, serving 20 of our 46 counties across the Midlands, Pee Dee and Upstate. Harvest Hope of the Pee Dee serves Chesterfield, Clarendon, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Lee, Marlboro and Marion counties.
