Who Goes Hungry in the Big Bend?

Many people are surprised to learn that Second Harvest’s 11-county service area in the Big Bend has the highest level of food insecurity in Florida, at 18.9%, or 1 in 5 adults and 1 in 5 children. Almost 100,000 of our neighbors, including families, children and seniors, experience hunger on a regular basis.

How We Help

Second Harvest of the Big Bend food bank works with a network of 135 partner agencies across 11 counties in the Big Bend to distribute enough healthy and nutritious food each month for 786,127 meals. We educate and engage the community in the fight against hunger, and we rely on assistance from individuals, businesses and organizations who share our commitment to a healthy community.
