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.


The Big Bend is home to


of the


counties in Florida with the HIGHEST RATES OF FOOD INSECURITY.

A staggering


of our neighbors are


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.
