Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida

Who Are We

Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a private, nonprofit organization that collects, stores and distributes donated food to more than 550 feeding partners in six Central Florida counties: Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia. Last year, with the help of numerous donors, volunteers and a caring, committed community, the food bank distributed 52 million meals to partner programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens, women’s shelters, senior centers, day care centers and Kids Cafes.

In addition to helping feed the line of our neighbors who need help, Second Harvest also transforms dozens of lives directly every year.  Economically-challenged adults who graduate from our 14-week culinary training program are placed in ‘better than minimum wage’ jobs that set them and their families on a path to self-sustainability.  Yet another important activity helps connect people who are eligible to receive SNAP food assistance benefits with the resources they need to access the program and get help.

Second Harvest Food Bank is also a member of Feeding America, a nationwide network of more than 200 food banks that helps feed people across the country. Click here to learn more about Feeding America and this network of food banks.

Mission: To create hope and nourish lives through a powerful hunger relief network, while multiplying the generosity of a caring community.

Vision: Inspiring and engaging our community to end hunger.
