The COMET and FoodShare to Offer Healthy Food Access at the Transit Center

The COMET is partnering with FoodShare South Carolina to make it easy and affordable to access fresh fruits and vegetables. The COMET Is committed to connecting people to place where they can access fresh food. Now, The COMET is bringing the food to the people with the help of FoodShare. The FoodShare Fresh Food Box is filled with 12-15 different top-quality fruits and vegetables fresh from the Farmer’s Market!

How does it work? Fresh Food Boxes will be available on two Tuesdays a month at 3:00pm – Closing on the “Pick-Up” days. Pick Up Days are:

  • November 6th
  • November 20th
  • December 4th

The boxes are only $5.00 if paying with SNAP/EBT. Boxes are only $15.00 if paying with CASH. Limited number available. First come, first served.

About FoodShare

FoodShare believe access to fresh, affordable food should not be limited by where you live or how much you make. That’s why we’re working to make it easier for families in our state to enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. Join us in the FoodShare South Carolina movement to ensure fresh, healthy food access for all. FoodShare South Carolina is a program of the Palmetto Health USC Medical Group.
