40,000 Reasons Why

Author: Agency Relations & Programs Team


This September, we are looking for hunger heroes, like you, to take the Share a Meal Challenge. This small act can help provide an additional 40,000 meals for our Central Florida neighbors in need.

When you step outside today, look around you and know that 1 out of 6 Central Floridians struggles with hunger. Families are faced with deciding between rent and food and seniors between medicine and groceries. 1 in 4 kids doesn’t regularly have enough to eat. It shouldn’t be like this.

Your gift today will help feed our neighbors in need immediately. A generous, anonymous donor has offered to match your gift up to $5,000. This is your chance to double your impact.

Your $10 gift normally provides 40 meals, but right now, it can provide 80 meals. Can we count on you to share a meal today?

Agency Spotlight: Provision Packs- Volusia County

Author: Agency Relations & Programs Team

On Friday May 4th Provision Packs from Ormond Beach Florida in Volusia County, hosted their first mobile drop at Holly Hill Elementary School . They distributed 31,000 lbs of food for 248 families, 961 people including 367 children. The drop was a drive thru where families drove up to the distribution site where their cars where loaded with free groceries to help those in need in the Holly Hill area.

Not only did families receive much needed food, they were also given flowers, employment information and resources and children’s clothing

Provisions Packs partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank, Holly Hill Police Department, Volusia County Sheriffs Department, several area churches and businesses who volunteered to assist at the drop.

Provision Packs currently serves 270 bags of food to students in need every Friday at 5 Volusia County Schools. Their goal is to serve 500 students in need weekly this fall. Carrie Torres, founder of Provision Packs, hopes she will be able to provide more drops in the future with help from Second Harvest Food Bank and community volunteers. “We just want to take care of each other as a community, Carrie said while gesturing to a cluster of volunteers that day. “It really does take a Village”
