Expanding the Possibilities for Solving Hunger in Florida
Through collaboration and innovation, Feeding Florida member food banks are expanding the possibilities for solving hunger. Access to healthy nutritious food is fundamental and is the foundation from which the success of all other issues is determined. If a child is hungry, that child cannot learn. If an adult is hungry, they can neither meet nutritional needs faced daily nor overcome the barriers that keep families in persistent poverty.

Our statewide network of member food banks works to feed more than 3.6 million hungry Floridians.
Feeding Florida member food banks support more than 2,400 community-based partner agencies, which provide food directly to individuals and families in need to ensure a hunger-free Florida. Last year, the Feeding Florida network provided 404 million pounds of food. Of that, 52 million pounds was fresh, locally-grown fruits and vegetables. Feeding Florida is a unified voice regarding hunger and food access by focusing on each community’s needs.More About Feeding Florida
Pinpointing hunger at hyper-local levels
Feeding Florida is changing how hunger is measured and identified. This revolutionary work is allowing us to pinpoint missing meals at hyper-local levels across the state. The result of our new Meal Deficit Metric (MDM) translates into a more accurate, granular understanding of real hunger, which then allows for a more strategic investment in addressing it.Dig Into the Data
