How the Food gets to the Community

How the food gets to the community
Click here if you need food assistance.

You won’t find lines of people stretching around our warehouses waiting for food assistance.

What you will find instead are representatives from more than 550 nonprofit feeding programs in our area who are picking up the food their programs need to keep helping our neighbors.

More than 550 nonprofit agencies in six Central Florida counties receive much of the food they serve or give to their clients from Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.


The types of agencies served by Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida are:

  • Emergency food pantries
  • Soup kitchens
  • Homeless shelters
  • Shelters for battered women and children
  • Residential treatment programs
  • Transitional housing
  • Low-income day care centers
  • Low-income youth activity programs
  • Kids Cafes
  • Summer camps
  • Meal sites for low-income seniors
  • Disaster relief agencies
  • Group homes
  • HIV/AIDS programs
  • Other nonprofit agencies that serve our neighbors in need

Approximately half of our partner agencies provide bags or boxes of food for clients to take and prepare at home.

If you or someone you know is in need of food assistance, please contact us for a referral to one of the agencies we serve.   We’ll be able to guide you in contacting a feeding  program near you for help.

For more information, please contact:

Erin Gray - Agency Relations Manager
