Disinvestment has created underserved spaces that lack:

  • traditional grocery stores

  • quality jobs

  • affordable housing

 

Additionally, the southern end of the city:

  • is overrun with hazardous industrial zones

  • suffers from the highest eviction rate in the US.

 

We hire from the community and pay our employees livable wages.

Youth Intern Neighbor Pay

Families in disinvested communities always had it rough, but due to COVID-19, our neighbors are really going through it. Youth Intern Neighbor Pay gives us the opportunity to keep more of our donations and other revenue, in North Charleston households. The other beautiful thing about internships at FFF is that students will be immersed in the benefits of food justice.
