Meals for Families
In Central Florida, one in eight of our neighbors faces hunger. Root causes of hunger, like lack of affordable housing, education or chronic illness, make it nearly impossible for families to keep up with higher costs. When push comes to shove, the grocery budget gets trimmed to pay the bills.
“The rent eats first,” explains Paula at a food distribution event. Paula is a single mom juggling work, school and busy kids. She and many neighbors lined up to receive groceries at a mobile food distribution event in Orange City before sunrise.
Your support of Second Harvest Food Bank allows food to flow through 625+ partner organizations and into the hands of kids, families, and seniors when they need it most. With the nutritious food they need, our neighbors, like Paula, can focus on training for a better job, finding stable housing, and raising healthy kids.
“I’m just trying to make things work out,” said Paula as volunteers loaded fresh produce, milk and pantry staples into her car.
“If it wasn’t for you, I don’t know where I’d be. Thank you.”
