At Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, our mission is to fight hunger in our community and change lives. One of the innovative ways we’re doing this is through our Darden Foundation Community Kitchen – a 2,000-square-foot commercial kitchen space designed as an integral part of Second Harvest’s holistic approach to fighting hunger and poverty. In this dynamic space, the food bank offers:
  • a 14-week culinary program focused on foodservice-based technical, life and employability skills training for adults;
  • Catering for Good: an in-house full-service catering with affordable event space available for your next event, meeting, or seminar;
  • bulk and disaster relief food partnerships with state and community organizations.
In addition, we work closely with local growers and farmers to gather and transform surplus produce. The donated product is cooked, flash frozen, and ready to nourish those in need.
