A Mobile Drop is a unique and effective approach to distributing food in underserved communities by providing fresh produce and other nutritious food directly to feeding programs in Central Florida.
The program supplies a crucial lifeline to the hungry in Central Florida. With each delivery, Second Harvest transports at least 10,000-20,000 pounds of fruit, vegetables, and dry goods directly to the communities where low-income individuals live (roughly 10-20 pallets of product).
The program began in 2011 because of an unmet need in certain areas and a recurring surplus of produce and bread products in our warehouse. In an effort to reduce the amount of waste that results from a slow turn over of this product and increase the amount of food brought to underserved communities, Mobile Drops were created.
In 2014 and 2015, Second Harvest distributed more than 1,800,000 pounds of critically needed food through eight drops per month in five of the counties we serve: Lake, Seminole, Orange, Osceola and Marion.
