Awesome Quick  Points to Remember

  • Approximately 1 in 5 of our population—732,000 people—needed food assistance in Central Florida last year.  That is a scary statistic.  Even scarier, 47% of clients served are children.
  • We set up a bin in my office, hit neighborhoods near us we weren’t assigned and were able to collect a record amount of food.
  • While I was waiting to drop off my carload of food, at least four different people walked up to us and thanked us for collecting the food.  My son just beamed with pride and I just tried my hardest not to cry.
  • It really makes you thankful for what you have in your life.  We may not have the pool I want, we may not be able to do the kitchen renovation that would make our house nicer, but you know what – we have food.  And so many do not.
  • The question now becomes – how do you help?  For starters, get collecting!
  • Go through your pantry, stock up during BOGO, hit Aldi and get some super cheap cans.
  • There are a number of great Central Florida non-profit groups doing good.
  • Click here to fill a tummy!

We collect food and donations also in Winter Park.  Address: 2100 Lee Rd. Winter Park, Fl 32789.  We are bracing for a 33% increase this year.
