Our community is facing an unprecedented emergency. During this time of uncertainty, your help is desperately needed.
Your gift today will help those facing prolonged school closures, layoffs and business closings. The economic impact on our community has been tremendous, and will only get worse as our tourism and service industries are devastated.
The shelter in place order starts today in Orange and Osceola Counties. However, as an essential business and service provider to our community, Second Harvest will remain open and continue providing meals to our neighbors, many who have never asked for food assistance before.
Thanks to the generous support of individuals like YOU, Second Harvest is rapidly mobilizing to keep meals on the table for vulnerable seniors, families and kids in our community.
Here’s what you are making possible this week:
• 5,500 meals for kids are being provided daily through our Kids Café, Summer Food and Community Kitchen programs.
• 2,700 emergency food boxes are feeding families and seniors.
• Mobile drops are happening twice daily across Central Florida.
• 50% more food is safely being distributed through our 550 feeding partner network.
Will you help make sure that parents who were laid off are able to feed their children? That seniors don’t have to choose between food and medicine? That kids aren’t skipping the meals they need to grow and learn? They need you now more than ever.
I can’t thank you enough for your support. Through countless disasters, we’ve been able to count on our community to pull together and help those that need it most. I know that we will get through this together.
