Mobile Food Drops Increase Food Access After a Disaster

One of the ways Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida responds in the wake of a natural disaster is through mobile food drops.

The Mobile Drop Program, which has grown considerably since its inception in 2011, is a unique and effective way of distributing large volumes of food and water to the communities that need it most.

In the week following Hurricane Irma, Second Harvest completed 10 mobile drops across Central Florida with more scheduled this week. Apostolic Church of Jesus in Altamonte Springs, one of last week’s drop locations, provided water, MREs and other non-perishables to more than 500 individuals. Second Harvest’s own Nutrition Ambassador, Chef Terah, was also on hand to greet attendees and answer questions.
