About Second Harvest
If you don’t know about The Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, let us start by saying this is a BIG operation! We are a private, nonprofit organization that collects, stores and distributes donated food to more than 550 feeding partners in six Central Florida counties: Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia. Last year, with the help of numerous donors, volunteers and a caring, committed community, the food bank distributed nearly 75 million meals to partner programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens, women’s shelters, senior centers, day care centers and Kids Cafes.
In addition to getting food to those in our community who need it, Second Harvest transforms dozens of lives directly every year through several innovative programs. Economically-challenged adults who graduate from our 16-week culinary training program are placed in ‘better than minimum wage”’ jobs that set them and their families on a path to self-sufficiency. We provide assistance to connect people who are eligible to receive SNAP food assistance benefits with the resources they need to access the program and get help. We collaborate with many social service agencies to address the broad spectrum of needs facing many members of our community.
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.
