Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida recently received a $250,000 donation from Conviva Care Centers. Conviva operates senior-focused medical centers in Florida and Texas, with clinics in Central Florida. The funds will be used to continue helping the nonprofit organization with distributing healthy food, specifically to the vulnerable senior population in Daytona Beach, during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“While we have never seen a disaster of this scale before, we’re seeing people come together to help one another through it,” said Dave Krepcho, president and CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. “This incredibly generous donation from Conviva Care Solutions will help Second Harvest continue serving 300,000 meals a day – double our usual distribution.”
Conviva Care Centers represents hundreds of family practices in Florida and Texas. The company promotes value-based and patient-centric care, with the mission of meeting the changing needs of patients as they age.
“Health and hunger go hand-in-hand,” said Kevin Meriwether, President of Conviva Care Solutions. “For seniors living on a fixed income, it can be hard to access nutritious foods. By donating to Second Harvest, we’re doing our part to ensure our neighbors in need can enjoy fresh produce and healthy meals.”
