Bring Hope Home is Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida’s newest innovation in response to the high demand for home-delivered food due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program utilizes external delivery partners as well as volunteer drivers to safely transport perishable and nonperishable food items directly to those in need in a contact-free manner.
Community organizations can partner with Second Harvest Food Bank to directly refer clients to the program, or individuals can contact the food bank themselves to receive a home delivery screening. The target populations for this program are seniors, homebound individuals, individuals with a disability, and those in the high-risk group for contracting coronavirus.
Bring Hope Home is available in Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake, Volusia, and Brevard County.
During the soft launch of the program in April and May 2020, 20,358 meals were delivered to 2,318 individuals.
