CareSouth Carolina hosts Ribbon Cutting Ceremony in Bishopville

October 26th 2022

CareSouth Carolina hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony at noon Wednesday, October 26, 2022, at the organization’s first Community Resource Center and Food Bank. The building, located at 106 Hospital Square, Bishopville, S.C., formerly served as Dr. Leon E. Hunt’s medical office.

“It is an emergency food assistance pantry,” said CareSouth Carolina Community Health Educator Christy Beasley. “Anyone with a need can get food at no cost. If they are getting for more than themselves, they need a household summary from the Department of Social Services (DSS).”


Beasley added that families in need can get food once every 3 months.
“The food comes from Harvest Hope Food Bank and community donations,” Beasley said. “This food pantry will serve anyone with a need, not just Lee County residents.”

The food pantry is open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4 p.m. “If you need assistance at different times, contact CareSouth Carolina’s Bishopville office to set up a referral,” Beasley said. That contact number is 803-484-5317. The building serves as a community resource center all week from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.  
CareSouth Community Health Worker Tameeka Lesane is the pantry operator, Beasley said, and other community health workers, patient advocates, and outreach specialists from Bishopville take turns assisting Lesane during operating hours.
