“I understand that food insecurity affects communities of color at a higher percentage,” Lim said. “And the pandemic has only worsened circumstances for many of these families. I’m humbled by this opportunity to join Second Harvest’s board and help to make a difference for those in need.”
Lim emigrated with his family from Nicaragua and saw how his parents struggled to put food on the table – an experience that inspired lifelong advocacy for others and prompted his involvement with Second Harvest.
A Maitland-based immigration attorney, Lim belongs to the American Immigration Lawyers Association and the Hispanic Bar Association of Central Florida. He earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Florida State University before going to the University of Miami School of Law.
For more than a year, Second Harvest’s food distribution has been equivalent to 300,000 meals a day – double the organization’s pre-pandemic operation levels. To learn how to support the food bank, visit www.FeedHopeNow.org.
