From a program that started in the space of a former restaurant, a preacher began serving food to over 80 children in need – daily.

Terry McLean, pastor, community leader, entrepreneur, co-founded Capture Community Center, a nonprofit organization in 2004 after realizing that South Carolina families needed more support.

Based in Conway and Loris, SC, Terry Mclean established a food bank within Capture Community Center, now serving approximately 500 families a week. She is well known for her extensive service at the center, offering a wide range of programs addressing food insecurity, mentoring, and tutoring children, holding summer camp, and creating one of the largest childcare centers in the state.

With September 1st being National Food Bank Day, we can look at Terry McLean and Capture Community Center play in providing to those in need. Terry McLean was honored with the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Award for Outstanding Public Service Benefiting Local Communities at the 50th Jefferson Awards ceremony and continues to be a light to her community.
