GREENVILLE, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The largest food bank in South Carolina is under repair after major cold weather caused the water pipes to burst over the holiday weekend at the Upstate branch.

Harvest Hope Food Bank’s Chief Executive Officer Erinn Rowe said the facility located at 2818 White Horse Road flooded due to the busted pipes.

“We have suffered extensive damage to our offices, but are hopeful we can prevent any inventory loss,” said the food bank.

The Upstate Harvest Hope branch provides meals to the Greater Greenville communities.

The community is now working to get Harvest Hope back on its feet.

Those looking to help with immediate clean-up needs can make a donation here.

All Harvest Hope locations will remain closed this week as the food bank resets for the new year.
