Challenge

Support is needed in the form of donations after the storm. For over 33 years, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida has remained ready to respond to the needs of the local community in the times of natural or man-made disasters. With power out and homes damaged or destroyed, the storm victims cannot provide food for themselves and their families. Second Harvest stands ready to provide the food and water needed by the people in our community in the path of Hurricane Matthew.

Solution

With your help, Second Harvest Food Bank can provide extended relief service for storm victims in Brevard, Volusia, Orange, Seminole, Osceola and Lake Counties. As soon as safe, our warehouses will begin distribution of food resources for the people in Central Florida struggling to rebuild their lives. With a network of over 550 partner agencies, we can reach people throughout our community with food and water critically needed, both immediately after the storm and during the clean up period

Long-Term Impact

Once the storm is over, it takes many months to clean up the damage. For some families, jobs will be lost because of damaged workplaces, meaning lost wages needed for food. Others will struggle through replacing what was lost with no place to live. Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a member of Feeding America, which provides a highly effective way to quickly direct large quantities of food resources from around the nation to our area, when needed, such as following this storm.
