The tab for dinner is on Bruce Springsteen for fifteen hundred struggling South Carolina families, thanks to new mobile food pantries, funded in part by a $50,000 donation from the Boss.
Beginning Tuesday, the five pantries-on-wheels began delivery of 75,000 pounds of groceries to residents of Fort Mill, S.C., a once a thriving mill town that today suffers with a 14 percent unemployment rate.
As Springsteen traveled on tour last year, he partnered with food banks such as Second Harvest to help feed hungry people around the country.
In November, his tour stopped in Charlotte and he told Second Harvest officials that he would donate $50,000 if the food bank could find someone who could match the donation. And they found that match, in the town of Fort Mill in the Springs Close Foundation.
