Independent Research has been conducted on this organization's theory of change or program effectiveness? No

We continue to face the challenge of providing sufficient food resources for our local neighbors who are struggling to feed their families. Although unemployment has eased, underemployment, with reduced hours and lower-than-previous wages, is causing thousands of Central Floridians to struggle to provide the basic necessities for their household.   

Seniors on a fixed income are faced with rising costs of food and fuel, forcing them to stretch their meager income further than before. As more people struggle, more people must seek food assistance.

We will continue to provide food resources for our neighbors from Puerto Rico who have been forced to relocate to Central Florida by the massive rebuilding that island faces because of Hurricane Maria.

More financial resources are needed to defray the costs of collecting, sorting, storing, and distributing the food and grocery items needed for the hungry people in our community. For every $1 donated, up to $9 worth of food and grocery items will reach hungry men, women, and children in our community. That is a powerful return on your investment.


Since 1983, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida has remained faithful in our work to alleviate hunger in our community.   By helping to close the gap between our community’s need for donated food and amount of food available, it is a mission that touches hundreds of thousands of lives each year. 

Second Harvest Food Bank began as the vision of concerned citizens that felt a strong need for a local response to the problem of hunger in our community.  In our first year of operation, we distributed 618,000 pounds of donated food to 75 local nonprofit agencies.    In fiscal year 2016-17, 63 million pounds of food and grocery items…the equivalent of approximately 53 million meals…were distributed to more than 550 Central Florida nonprofit organizations providing emergency food assistance.   An additional 3 million pounds of food…equivalent to approximately 2.5 million meals…reached families eligible for the Supplement Food Assistance Program (SNAP, commonly known as food stamps) through our Benefits Connection Outreach Program.

With an estimated gap of 97 million meals needed annually to truly impact hunger in Central Florida, we are committed to increasing our service to the community. We are in Year 3 of our Strategic Plan, designed to grow our service by an additional 18 million meals by 2020.

Direct distribution of food resources to more than 550 nonprofit feeding partners in the six Central Florida Counties of Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Volusia, Brevard, and Lake.  Indirect service to Marion County through a partnership with First Step Food Bank in Ocala.
HelpWhat is the organization aiming to accomplish? This is the organization's ultimate goal for intended impact.

The goal of Second Harvest Food Bank is to alleviate hunger with a vision of a hunger-free Central Florida. To achieve this goal, we will distribute tens of millions of pounds of food annually to local nonprofit organizations, our “partner agencies” providing food assistance for people in need in the Central Florida counties of Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Brevard, Volusia, and Lake. Food insecure men, women and children…seniors, families and individuals…will have access to food because of the work of the Food Bank. 

Central Florida's Faces of Hunger 2014, a study conducted locally as part of Feeding America's nationwide study, revealed that people in Central Florida turn to charitable feeding programs 71,600 times in a typical week. Among these clients, 27% are children under the age of 18 and 11% are seniors age 65 and older. These are our hungry neighbors who must seek food assistance from local food pantries, congregate feeding sites, homeless shelters, senior programs, children’s programs, and other programs that use the food resources distributed by Second Harvest. Although the local economy is slowly recovering, thousands of people remain unemployed, and thousands more are underemployed, and are working for lower wages and few hours than they did in the past. When meager earnings are not sufficient to cover the basic necessities, people in need must turn to our partner agencies for help.

Second Harvest is committed to helping to close the gap between the need for food assistance in our community and the amount of food available to provide that assistance. We continue to find new sources of food donations; greater efficiencies in distributing food resources; and ways in which we can provide training, as needed, for our partner agencies to help grow their capacity and efficiency in providing assistance to their clients.

Our goals for 2017-18 include:

-- increase food distribution by additional 3.2 million pounds

-- increase fresh produce distribution by additional 3.3 million pounds

-- graduate 66 students from our Culinary Training Program

-- maintain 95% job placement at time graduation from our Culinary Training Program, with remaining 5% placed within 30 days of graduation

HelpWhat are the organization's strategies for its stated long-term goals?

The completion and occupancy of the Morgan & Morgan, P.A. Hunger Relief Center in 2013 provided the capacity to meet the food assistance needs of tens of thousands of struggling Central Floridians. The increased food storage and distribution capacity should conservatively allow enough food for approximately 495 million meals to reach people in need over the next twenty years.

The Second Harvest Culinary Training Program centered in the Darden Community Kitchen and the Distribution Center Training Program conducted in our warehouse provides workforce readiness training for adults who have a history of financial instability. An important component of both our training programs is the full range of life-skills classes included in the curriculum with topics such as basic banking and budgeting; business etiquette and resume writing; and techniques for relieving stress and balancing your work and home life. Acquiring these life-skills and job-readiness training will place our graduates on the path toward long-term financial stability.

The use of our community areas has exceeded our initial projections. This has provided opportunities more quickly than anticipated for our culinary students to gain hands-on catering experience. But more importantly, thousands of people using the community areas have been able to view a food bank in action through the windows of the community areas and by taking tours of the center. Many of these visitors had never seen a food bank or knew what a food bank does. Many did not know how large the problem of hunger is in our own community. This new-found knowledge will mobilize more people to join in the fight against hunger.

HelpWhat are the organization’s capabilities for doing this? What resources, capacities, and connections support its progress towards long-term goals?

The Morgan & Morgan, P.A. Hunger Relief Center enables Second Harvest to distribute food resources for tens of millions of pound of meals annually.  We have conservatively projected that over the next twenty years our organization will have distributed over 644 million pounds of food…which equates to $1.4 billion worth of food. 

The Hunger Relief Center provides the capacity to develop and launch new programs. The first of our new programs, the Second Harvest Culinary Training Program, became a reality in 2013 because of the new Darden Foundation Community Kitchen. We added our Distribution Center Training Program two years later. Both programs provide job readiness training in addition to life-skills training which will provide the program graduates with the skills to attain and maintain financial stability and self-sufficiency.

We have introduced thousands of people to our work through the use of the Community Room by outside organizations and groups. Groups who visit these areas typically request tours for their guests, who then can view hunger relief activities in process. This is the first exposure to Second Harvest for many of these people, who will choose to become part of the solution to the problem of hunger.

In addition to the Community Room, other meeting areas are available. These areas have state-of-the-art audio/video equipment available, and catering needs for meetings and events are prepared by the Community Kitchen and training program. This social entrepreneurial program provides general revenue for the Food Bank’s mission, and provides our culinary students with vital hands-on experience.

Volunteers remain a major part of our fight against hunger in Central Florida. In fiscal year 2016-17, 34,370 volunteers donated 107,095 hours to our mission. We have a large work area for up to 300 workers at a time, with a café-style break area. There is ample space for large groups. We have expanded volunteer opportunities to include some evening and Saturday hours.

Second Harvest Food Bank has assembled a staff with a passion for making a difference in the community by helping to assure that people in need have nutritious food to eat. Our President/CEO has twenty-seven years of experience in the field of food banking, four of those at Feeding America as Vice President of Business Development, and eleven with Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. The Vice President of Development has been with our Food Bank for twenty-two years. Our Chief Operating Officer has over twenty years of experience logistics/distribution center management. Twenty-four of our staff joined Second Harvest in 2008 or earlier, with 14 being members of the team for 10 years or more, and 3 having worked over 20 years at the Food Bank.
HelpHow will the organization know if it is making progress? What are the key qualitative and quantitative indicators against which the organization assesses its progress toward its intended impact?

Second Harvest Food Bank has a history of successfully growing our mission to fight hunger. A major component of that growth has been constant evaluation of our programs. Each program has a goal of outputs established for the fiscal year. As an indicator of progress towards the annual goal, a target for each month is also established. The program manager provides a monthly report of the prior month’s activities, which is reviewed by Senior Management. 

All food distribution programs are included in a monthly Operation Status Report. The monthly and year-to-date food donation and distribution results are compared to the monthly and annual goal and to the month and year-to-date results from the prior year.

A report is prepared for the Childhood Hunger Programs showing the results year-to-date compared to the goal for each program activity. The Benefits Connection SNAP Outreach indicators are the number of applications submitted and approved. Indicators for the Culinary Training and Distribution Center Training programs are specific skills that must be achieved for the students to become work-force ready.

A detailed report is prepared showing our current financial position and the progress of the Development Department toward their established fundraising goals. Our Chief Financial Officer provides a monthly overview of our financial status for the month and fiscal year-to-date

All of the above reports are compiled into the monthly Board of Directors packet and included in the board meeting discussion. Monthly review of all aspects of our organization allows developing trends to be quickly identified and addressed to assure our capacity to meet the food assistance needs in our community.

HelpWhat has and hasn’t been accomplished so far?

The completion and occupancy of the Morgan & Morgan, P.A. Hunger Relief Center in 2013 provided the capacity to meet the food assistance needs of tens of thousands of struggling Central Floridians. The increased food storage and distribution capacity should conservatively allow enough food for approximately 495 million meals to reach people in need over the next twenty years.

The use of the community areas of the Hunger Relief Center by thousands of people from our community has increased their awareness of hunger and has provided an opportunity for them to see firsthand the working of our Food Bank

The Second Harvest Culinary Training and Distribution Center Training programs are providing job-readiness skills for formerly underemployed/unemployed adults with the goal that these adults and their families will no long be faced with hunger because the family has long-term financial stability because of steady employment.

Moving forward, we will work to educate people on the connection between the effects of hunger on the health of low-income people. Our vision is work collaboratively with healthcare providers and other nonprofits to provide healthy food boxes and nutrition education specific to chronic, diet-related diseases.

Description Distribution of food and grocery items which are collected, stored, sorted, and distributed to more than 550 local nonprofit organizations providing emergency food assistance to people in need.  Food manufacturers, distributors, and retailers donate products that do not meet precise industry standards due to labeling errors, overruns, discontinuances, or test marketing.  Restaurants, hotels, resorts, theme parks, and other food outlets are able to contribute prepared and perishable food.  Nonperishable foods are contributed by the general public through community food drives.  The U.S.D.A. also provides government food commodities for distribution.  Rarely donated items are purchased in volume and made available for purchase by nonprofit feeding programs.  Our Grocery Alliance Program sends Food Bank trucks to local grocery outlets to pick up donations of perishable and nonperishable items.

Students attend classes Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.


Population Served Adults

The Second Harvest Distribution Center Training Program was launched in 2015. It offers technical and professional skills courses that provide students the hands-on employability skills they will need in the fast-paced, increasingly competitive Warehouse/Distribution Center industries. In addition, they receive life-skills training to help put them on the path to long-term self sufficiency.


The Distribution Center Training Program is designed to identify qualified students age 18 and over that will benefit from the training provided by our organization.

They will be immersed in all aspects of warehouse operations including: Safety, Inventory, Housekeeping, Receiving, Shipping and Process Flow. 


The life skills component of our program prepares students for work- readiness, focusing on the importance of appropriate work behaviors, resumes and interviewing techniques, as well as household budgeting, stress relief, and time management.


Our 14-week program is provided at no charge and designed to assist our students with overcoming barriers that would prevent them from achieving success while enrolled, such as lack of food, housing, transportation, childcare, and medical and mental health needs.

Because of this, some budget fields may be blank or represent an approximation. Organization describes previous experience during the immediate response, recovery or rebuilding phases following a disaster.
Program Description
Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida provides emergency food distribution to agencies serving victims of natural or man-made disasters. Disaster relief begins immediately following the incident, with distribution occurring from the warehouse on an as-needed basis throughout the time relief efforts continue in the community.   Our warehouse in Orlando has a back-up generator to supply the power necessary to maintain our coolers and freezers, and allows distribution to begin immediately.

Previous Experience
Second Harvest served as a staging location for the relief efforts in South Florida following Hurricane Andrew in 1992. Food resources were provided locally following the 1998 tornadoes in the tri-county area.   Following the terrorist attack on 9/11, additional food resources were needed by our partner agencies who saw increased need for food assistance due to the many job layoffs in the hospitality industry.

During the 2004 hurricane season, more than 2.7 million pounds of food were distributed for people in Central Florida devastated by the three successive storms. 


When Hurricane Katrina stuck the Gulf Coast in 2005, Second Harvest sent food and staff resources to assist with relief efforts.   


Second Harvest does not budget for disaster relief. We draw on our existing reserves, to assure that food resources are available for disaster victims as long as they are needed.   We welcome financial support from the community during the time of disaster so that we can increase the amount of food resources available for people directly affected by the disaster.    Disaster relief is provided in addition to the ongoing food distribution needed for our hungry neighbors.

Resources and/or Services Offered in Disaster

Second Harvest provides a broad range of food and grocery items that are needed following a disaster. This typically includes water and shelf-stable foods.   Foods that do not require cooking are provided in areas without electricity.   Fruits and vegetables are highly desired during a disaster because they are easy to eat and highly nutritious. Donated non-food items, such as cleaning supplies, are also made available for the community.
