One Country Give will be contributing its fourth 10,000 meal donations across the U.S. to Feeding America member, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
According to the Second Harvest Food Bank, they collect, store and distribute food to more than 550 feeding partners in six counties, Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia.
In 2020, more than 73 million meals were distributed by the food bank to partner programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens, women’s shelters, senior centers, day care centers and kids cafes, according to the Second Harvest Food Bank.
Second Harvest reported that they also change dozens of lives yearly by providing a 16-week training program for economically-challenged adults who are able to graduate and be placed in ‘better than minimum wage’ jobs that set up them and their families on a path to self sustainability.
For every dollar donated, Second Harvest can donate up to $9 worth of food, or four meals to help neighbors in need- fruits, vegetables, grains, protein foods, dairy products, meals, baby food and non- food items are all on the most needed items list.
