When a Disaster Hits Florida, We’re Ready

Hurricane Season is underway and Florida’s Food Banks have planned, trained and are ready to respond. Should the need arise, Florida Food Banks are ready to assist the State Emergency Response Team (SERT) to provide food, water and logistics support to help feed our neighbors affected by natural disasters.         

During a natural disaster venerable populations are at even greater risk because they lack the resources need to prepare. Even well off populations can quickly become overwhelmed by the disaster and lack of preparation.

Every day Florida Food Banks are serving vulnerable populations and we continue to serve after the disaster strikes helping our neighbors get back on their feet.  

If you don’t have a plan or you want to update your plan, the State of Florida has many resources to help you survive and not become a victim.

Get A Plan! The Florida Division of Emergency Management  (FDEM) provides an online disaster plan tool.  Families, individuals and businesses can use it to create a onetime plan or create an account and profile before creating your plan to retrieve it later. Visit Get A Plan! At www.flgetaplan.com

Learn and Prepare. FDEM provides other resources and literature on preparation for disasters. They also provide education on the varieties of disasters that could occur in Florida that are less common than flooding and hurricanes.  Visit: www.floridadisaster.org for more information.

Feeding Florida is part of Florida's Comprehensive Emergency Management Plan and work with other Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters (VOAD) to help distribute food and water after a disaster. It takes the whole community to help recover. Our partnerships with other organizations like the American Red Cross, The Salvation Army, the Florida Baptist Convention and our 2500 community partners statewide provide a safety net of care for our neighbors.
