Second Harvest North Florida relies on the generous donations from individuals, as well as government and private grants, to serve its clients. We thank all of our donors and supporters for their generosity and compassion. Donors in the list below are broken down into categories:
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Second Harvest North Florida has a new tool in the battle against hunger, thanks to a generous donation by Winn-Dixie Stores. The Jacksonville-based grocer donated a 50-foot refrigerated semi-trailer on Wednesday, Sept. 5. The trailer was loaded with approximately 13,000 pounds of food to help restock the food bank’s warehouse, which is experiencing a depleted inventory as the summer months wane.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The inventory of shelf-stable and perishable food in the Second Harvest North Florida warehouse is at its lowest level in more than two years as a result of spiking demand by families struggling to make ends meet. To help, Dixie Egg Company responded with a generous donation of more than 300,000 Grade A brown eggs to provide an important boost of protein-rich food.
