Plates of Plenty is a service that provides freshly prepared meals to early childcare centers, children's after school programs, group homes, senior feeding programs, and private and charter schools. Plates of Plenty's goal is to provide the freshest, healthiest, and least processed ingredients available, and to deliver them in a safe and timely manner.
All meals are prepared in our Darden Foundation Community Kitchen under the supervision of our Chefs and production staff. Proceeds from food service operations are used to further the fight against hunger in our community.
During the summer, Plates of Plenty prepares, packages and delivers to our Summer Food sites every weekday.
With generous funding from the Nemours Foundation, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida conducted an exploratory pilot to determine whether a community food bank could provide ECE programs with healthy, affordable food service as a childhood obesity prevention strategy. The goal of exploring this emerging topic was to learn information that could be shared widely with the field for broad impact. Over the course of 7 months, Second Harvest provided 16,892 meals to four pilot sites through the Plates of Plenty program. Click here to learn more.
