Thank You for Being A Hunger Hero!

Author: Brie Rios

All September long, we have asked our community to partner with us to help spread the word about Hunger Action Month. A huge thank you to everyone who’s shared a meal, volunteered their time, made a financial contribution or accepted our Go Orange and SNAP challenges! We were blown away by the response and dedication of local businesses and individuals who helped us advocate all month long.

We also want to thank our generous donor, who matched all donations up to $5,000 and the City of Orlando for proclaiming Hunger Action Month to the whole city! Even amidst one of the largest hurricanes in Florida to-date, I am pleased to say that all of our efforts have produced 27,704 meals that will go directly into feeding our own community right here in Central Florida! Amazing work, hunger heroes!

We would also like to give a shout out to Black Rooster Taqueria! Every Tuesday throughout the month of September, Black Rooster Taqueria generously donated 20% of their sales to Second Harvest. What more can you ask for besides tacos for a good cause? Of course, many thanks also to Five Guys and Fireflies and Lilies for throwing proceeds nights for Second Harvest! We are so appreciative of our Community Partners for helping us advocate and for their help supporting the cause.

Together we are building a hunger-free community. Hunger Action Month may be over, but we still need your help! Visit feedhopenow.org to find ways you can fight hunger all year long.
