Hunger in the state of Florida is a very real issue for children, families, veterans, and individuals struggling each day just to satisfy basic needs. For a young child, outside of school hours, to be without food is a hidden reality faced everyday by teachers, churches, shelters, and other local service programs. And for a working mother to go hungry sacrificing a package of noodles, or frozen dinner, just to feed her child is also a dim reality that goes unseen constantly.
The key to ending hunger in our local community is for programs to have free access to fresh foods. By harvesting fresh meats, dairy items, fruits, and vegetables for local feeding programs, food insecurity can be effectively addressed in Northwest Florida.
Destin Harvest serves a vital role in the community by delivering free foods to over 35 local organizations that work directly with hundreds of hardworking families and individuals in need of real support. For more information about our organization or how we operate please refer to About Us. If you have any questions about our operation please contact us and we’ll make sure to get back to you!
Together, we can make a difference, one meal at a time.
