We've been working hard preparing for our first assault in the "Fighting Hunger, Feeding Hope" campaign, which we developed for Feeding South Florida. Today, the Fight against hunger escalates to an all out war as Feeding South Florida prepares to inaugurate their new facility with a large, by invitation only event that will feature some of South Florida's top chef's.
Feeding South Florida is a not-for-profit organization that empowers over 800 South Florida not-for-profit organizations to assist people in need and improve their lives. Feeding South Florida does this by providing food and other grocery products; and by educating and engaging our community to fight hunger and poverty. Feeding South Florida strives to serve children, the elderly, the mentally and physically challenged, veterans and the working poor with compassion and integrity. Feeding South Florida is a member of Feeding America, the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity.
In conjunction with the inauguration, we've launched a new face for Feeding South Florida with their new website, where you can learn more about the food bank, volunteer your time or make donations, or if you need support, find a local agency to assist you.
