Big Bend kids are counting on you.

Together, we’ll keep them fed this summer and beyond.

OUR SERVICE AREA

OUR VISION?

A hunger-free Florida Big Bend.

Second Harvest of the Big Bend is based in Tallahassee, Florida. We provide healthy food for neighbors facing hunger and food insecurity throughout our 16-county Big Bend service area.

As the region's primary source for charitable food, our facility acts as a storage and distribution depot for over 149 smaller frontline agency partners, including emergency food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters, children's homes, homes for the mentally disabled, and domestic violence shelters.

Our mission is to advance change by feeding the hungry and educating and engaging the community in the fight to end hunger.

OUR IMPACT

The Big Bend is home to

FIVE

of the

counties in Florida with the HIGHEST RATES OF FOOD INSECURITY.

A staggering

WORKING POOR,

living paycheck-to-paycheck at just above the Federal Poverty Level and unable to afford basic living expenses.

In 2022, Second Harvest delivered about

pounds of nutritious food to people in need for no charge.
