Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida volunteers were celebrated for their efforts in rescuing fresh produce. The critical need of hunger relief efforts recently received support from the International Fresh Produce Association at the close of its annual exhibition, which was held in Orlando recently.
At the close of the annual exhibition, more than a hundred volunteers rescued 196,285 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables. More than 100 tons of food was donated to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and distributed to its network of more than 500 community feeding partners.
Here are some photos of the volunteers, provided by Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida:
In the wake of Hurricane Ian, Second Harvest has ramped up operations and is again distributing enough food for 300,000 meals a day – a level reached at the height of the pandemic.
There are multiple ways to contribute to hunger relief efforts. To learn more, visit Second Harvest.
