TOTAL Ministries got its start in 1982 as Project Eat.
The founder of Project Eat, Dannie Horne, saw an unemployment rate of 9.7% and saw that many people in Spartanburg County were hungry. During the first 17 months of Project Eat's existence, $190,000 of groceries were distributed in an effort to alleviate that problem.
In 1983, TOTAL Ministires of Spartanburg County, Inc. was incorporated by 12 Spartanburg churches to carry on the work of Project Eat. Since then, additional emergency services have been added to the TOTAL mission in an effort to help those in need.
TOTAL is an extension of Spartanburg's local churches who believe in a faith-based approach to helping those in need.
TOTAL Ministries exists to Tell Others They Are Loved.
