Reaching out Through Mobile Drops

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.Second Harvest’s mobile food drop program has grown considerably and is now active in all 6 of our counties. These food distributions are a unique and effective approach to distributing fresh produce and other nutritious food in underserved communities.

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 fiscal year 2015/2016, Second Harvest distributed 2.3 million meals through about 15 drops per month in Brevard, Lake, Seminole, Osceola, Orange, Volusia and Marion Counties. Food drops are currently happening 3-4 times a week in Central Florida.
