FoodShare South Carolina, an initiative of the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Columbia, has been awarded a five-year grant to improve South Carolinians’ access to fresh, healthy food as a step toward decreasing the impact of diabetes in the state. To date, FoodShare has sold and distributed more than 71,000 Fresh Food Boxes containing more than 1.2 million pounds of produce to the citizens of South Carolina.

The BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina Foundation awarded a total of $11.6 million to four organizations as part of Diabetes Free SC, a new initiative to address disparities in diabetes care. Recognizing a healthy diet is essential for the prevention and management of diabetes, Diabetes Free SC will provide support for FoodShare South Carolina with the goal of ensuring access to fresh fruits and vegetables to all the citizens of the state.
