Why Advocacy?

Second Harvest Food Bank is committed to ending hunger in Central Florida but we cannot do this alone. Advocacy is a crucial part of hunger relief, and we are advocating for programs and policies at all levels of government to provide nutritious food for the most vulnerable in our community.

As one of the leading food banks in Florida, we are leveraging our knowledge and relationships to connect community feeding partners and client stories with policy-makers to support the end of hunger.

You can become an advocate today by adding your name to our advocacy newsletter. Thank you for lending your voice on behalf of families, seniors, and kids in our community.
