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.
How Feeding Florida is Ensuring No Kid Goes Hungry This Summer
While the summer months mean fun and play for some kids, 21 percent of children in Florida are currently experiencing food insecurity. Our Feeding Florida food banks are dedicated to providing access to healthy and nutritious food for the 906,470 children in Florida who experience food insecurity.

Missing Meals Analysis Reveals Increase due to COVID-19
Feeding Florida’s revolutionary study allows us to pinpoint missing meals at hyper-local levels across the state. This 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. A recent update to the MDM revealed an increase in weekly missing meals in 66/67 Florida counties.Dig Into the Data
