Second Harvest Food Bank serves as the distribution point for food that the US Government provides through the USDA’s TEFAP program (The Emergency Food Assistance Program). This is food purchased from farmers to help stabilize the price of food in our country, and is then processed, packaged, and distributed to people in need.
The Florida Department of Agriculture awarded distribution contracts for Orange, Seminole, Lake, Brevard, Volusia and Marion counties to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida for its distribution program of government food commodities.
In fiscal year 2013/2014, a total of 8,501,909 pounds of these wholesome products were made available to Central Floridians in need.
