A statewide effort is under way to stock shelves of four regional food banks serving thousands of needy South Carolinians.

The current class of Leadership South Carolina, a statewide program, calls the effort "Hunger Never Takes Break" and wants to raise $100,000 by June 1.

The effort benefits the Lowcountry Food Bank in Charleston, the Golden Harvest Food Bank in Aiken, the Harvest Hope Food Bank in Columbia and the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina in Charlotte.
