In honor of Hunger Action Month, Second Harvest Food Bank is hosting “Food for Thought” tours on Sept.14 and Sept.21. Tour participants will receive an in-person, behind the scenes look at the food bank’s warehouse distribution center. The warehouse is where Second Harvest works to help the one in seven Central Floridians experiencing food insecurity. That equates to a quarter of a million meals a day.
Attendees will also learn about the different programs the nonprofit maintains to help feed those experiencing food insecurity across Orange, Osceola, Lake, Seminole, Volusia and Brevard counties.
The goal of the tours is to raise awareness about food insecurity while inspiring the community to act on the hunger crisis. Tours are open to all community members at no cost.
Anyone interested in the Sept. 14 tour must register by Wednesday, September 7. Lunch will be offered to tour participants.
Anyone interested in the Sept. 21 tour must register by Wednesday, September 14. A snack box will be offered to tour participants.
