Focus on South Florida: Feeding South Florida

This holiday season, nearly one million South Floridians are going to bed hungry. And most of these men, women and children are our neighbors and friends who live right in our own communities. Feeding South Florida’s mission is to end hunger, but the food bank needs the public to help fill its bare shelves. We focus on why is the need so great, and how your support can make a difference.

Focus on South Florida: Feeding South Florida

A staggering nearly one million people in South Florida struggle to put food on the table. Feeding South Florida is the largest hunger-relief organization in the state, but recent cutbacks on Capitol Hill are going to make it harder for the nonprofit to achieve its mission. We focus on the impact of that on South Florida, as well as possible solutions.
