In times of disaster, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and its network of 550 agency partners represent a vital emergency food supply for the community. The food bank stands ready to provide extended relief service to storm victims in Brevard, Volusia, Orange, Seminole, Osceola and Lake Counties.
Second Harvest works closely with Feeding Florida, State and County Emergency Operations Centers and other local agencies to pinpoint the areas of need in each county. By funneling donations of food resources through Second Harvest, contributors can be certain their support is reaching the most affected areas in the most effective way. If needed, the Darden Foundation Community Kitchen at Second Harvest Food Bank will be used to prepare thousands of meals daily for distribution to sites throughout the affected area.
Local community support will be needed in the form of donations after the storm. Second Harvest is part of Feeding America, which provides a highly effective way to quickly direct large quantities of food resources from around the nation to our area if needed.
After the storm, ways for the local community to help Second Harvest help people in need are very specific:
