The holidays are synonymous with family gatherings, parties and giving back to those in need. Our very own Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida provides a Catering for Good program featuring drop ‘n go or full-service catering options. Each menu is designed and prepared from scratch by its award-winning Chef Jill Holland, using only the freshest, high-quality ingredients from locally-sourced, reputable food distributors.
For the holidays, the team has developed a delectable Thanksgiving Feast that will save you hours in the kitchen. A holiday buffet of sage butter turkey breast, harvest stuffing, garlic mashed potatoes, pan gravy and cranberry chutney can be delivered to you. Or the Catering for Good team can package everything up and have it ready for pickup by 2pm on Wed., Nov. 27. The “Holiday Dinners to Go” feed eight people for only $85. There are also a la carte dishes ranging from carrot and sweet potato slaw to cornbread bread pudding with Chantilly cream, which can be added-on or purchased individually to contribute to a potluck event. A la carte costs range from $12.95 to $19.95. The full menu and ordering information is available at FeedHopeNow.org.
Second Harvest also offers the perfect holiday gift through A Spoon Full of Hope, its multi-product retail line. Soup, local honey, cookies – in tandem with Catering for Good – benefits the organization’s 16-week, no-cost Culinary Training Program, which provides qualified, economically-challenged adults with the culinary and life skills training to pursue a sustainable career in the food industry. With a 100 percent job placement rate and hundreds given a second chance at life, it’s the ideal way to give and receive during the holiday season. Order today at ASpoonFullofHope.org.
