• RESOURCES •
There are many resources in our town and nearby in Kershaw County available for the enrichment and support for our community.
FOOD FOR THE SOUL
Food For The Soul is an organization based in Camden, serving hot meals, help to those in need, and offers guests a place of rest in their Homeless Shelter.
Due to COVID-19, food is not being served to the public inside the facility. However, they are providing meals to the public at the door as well as delivering meals throughout the county through the LOVE ON THE GO program.
Hot meals are served Tuesday – Friday 12PM – 1 PM. A light breakfast is also available from 9 AM – 10 AM. Hot meals are delivered to Bethune every Monday. On the third Monday of every month, hot meals are delivered at Refuge Baptist Church in the North Central area. Mondays at Friendship Baptist in Lugoff. And at Blaney Baptist Church on Thursdays.
Food for the Soul relies heavily upon volunteers to operate their ministry. There is always a need for transportation to pick up donated goods from community businesses along with clerical support. You may reach out to Food for the Soul to see how you may get involved today!
