American resourcefulness churns into a sweet cause – Epworth Ice Cream!
In the past, St Luke’s United Methodist church attendees had a sweet treat, sampling Epworth Ice Cream immediately following the services.
Epworth Ice Cream was born in Columbia South Carolina during the Great Depression. Subsidized with a surplus of peanut butter, orphanage staff relied on the government ration in countless meals. However, none became as popular as its infusion with fresh cream from the onsite dairy. Today peanut butter ice cream is the flagship flavor in a product family where 100% of profits benefit the Epworth Children’s Home, helping children and families live a better life.
South Carolinians can
- Purchase and enjoy 4 flavors available at 31 retailers and 3 restaurants throughout the mid-land area including the University of South Carolina in Columbia
- Purchase online and ship directly to you
Remember, every ounce supports Epworth Children’s Home!
