UWKC INITIATIVES

The Mobile Nutrition Center

Created in 2017, the Mobile Nutrition Center (MNC) is a mobile food pantry that delivers healthy foods to sites in food deserts located in rural Kershaw County, SC. The MNC directly serves clients by removing barriers that prevent access to food like transportation and income. Through community partnerships, MNC delivers farm fresh, store-bought and even rescued food and grocery products like vegetables, meats, whole pastas and rice, and baked goods to food insecure people.

In 2020, the Mobile Nutrition Center delivered over 190,000 pounds of food to over 7000 food insecure individuals in the food deserts of Kershaw County. 

The MNC Camden location is open Fridays 9:00am-12:00pm

and the Elgin pantry location is open on Wednesday 8:30am - 11:00am. We encourage you to visit one of the distribution sites listed in the chart below.
