The words “homeless” and “hungry” don’t come to mind when thinking of Daniel Island and the surrounding areas. However, the community is not exempt from the problems of food insecurity and homelessness.
In October 2020, Daniel Island resident Courtney Zalinski and her friend Ristine Sutton started collecting food for the local homeless population. “At the time, several local homeless shelters and food kitchens were temporarily closed due to COVID, and we wanted to
help the less fortunate who were dramatically affected by the pandemic … Our goal is to supply 150 bagged lunches weekly.”
