Destin Harvest Bridges The Gap Between Food Surplus and Hunger in Northwest Florida
Why we do it -
Every day thousands of Floridians go hungry. Some are sick, unemployed, or homeless. Many are elderly. Many are in working families, military, or retired veterans.
Yet each day thousands of pounds of good, fresh food are thrown away in our community. However, restaurants, country clubs, retailers, wholesalers, caterers, hotels, and cafeterias are able to don ate their “unexpected overages” without hesitating about liability. Destin Harvest delivers the wholesome food immediately to agencies feeding those in need.
Destin Harvest’s objective is to effectively supplement all qualifying feeding programs, such as soup kitchens, food pantries and homeless shelters, within Okaloosa and Walton County with free nutritious foods.
