Feeding the Spirit—with a Bold Heart
Beauty is usually referred to in the visual sense—an external description of someone or something. But, beauty can also be created, and take shape in the most surprising of ways. What some may have seen as too large of a problem to tackle, one individual came forward and boldly began to build beauty from ashes.
Nine years ago, Rev. Dr. Nannette Pierson moved to the Lowcountry, and saw first-hand the sadness that hunger brings. What began with feeding five families in a small community room at Sandalwood Terrace Apartments is now a dynamic initiative that feeds more than 800 families. Sandalwood Community Food Pantry was built out of compassion, dignity and straightforward love. “Fill the belly. No one is turned away. They are all family,” says Nannette. The Pantry is her gift to them, wrapped in grace and presented without judgment.
