SC food bank already preparing for possible impacts of Irma

GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – A food bank in South Carolina is already preparing for the possible impacts of Hurricane Irma.

Harvest Hope Food Bank has begun ordering extra food for people in need.

During the 2015 flood, Harvest Hope says they provided food that equaled between 2.3 and 2.5 million meals.

Their response level was the same after Hurricane Matthew.

They believe the need will be even greater after Hurricane Irma.

Harvest Hope says they are still supporting the recovery efforts of Hurricane Harvey but will be focusing on South Carolina until Irma has passed.
