The Gullah Celebration is the major source of funding for the Sea Islands Hunger Awareness Foundation, whose mission is to fight hunger by providing healthy food and clean water to needy families from Johns and Wadmalaw Islands. Many of the programs that SIHAF supports are familiar to Seabrook residents who participate in them as volunteers. They include the Blessing Basket, the Water Wellness Mission, Crockpot Cooking Class, Backpack Buddies of Seabrook, Fields to Families, the Hebron Zion Presbyterian Church Emergency Food Bank, Meals on Wheels of Charleston, Rockville Presbyterian Church Meals on Monday, St. James Bethel Food Pantry, Sweetgrass Garden and the Wesley United Methodist Temple Take Out Ministry.
