Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a member of Feeding America – the largest charitable domestic hunger-relief organization in the United States. Second Harvest secures and distributes food and grocery products to approximately 550 local nonprofit feeding programs throughout Central Florida.
Last year, with the help of food and financial donors, volunteers and a caring, committed community, the food bank distributed 58 million meals to partner programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens, women’s shelters, senior centers, day care centers and Kids Cafes. In addition, Second Harvest’s 16-week culinary program teaches foodservice-based technical, life and employability skills to economically hard-pressed adults.
The Map the Meal Gap 2018 study recently released by Feeding America provides insight and analysis of Americans who struggle with food insecurity in every county and congressional district in Central Florida and across the country. Learn more.
