Benefiting FEEDING SOUTH FLORIDA

In South Florida, 784,1100 individuals don’t know from where they will get their next meal. More than 264,280 of those individuals are children and nearly 130,000 are older adults.

As individuals, businesses and government, we all have a role to play in getting food to those who need it, as well as breaking the cycle of hunger and poverty. You can help Feeding South Florida by creating a virtual food drive page!

 

TO GET STARTED

  1. Click the "Fundraise" button and follow the instructions.
  2. Once you've created a page under this "event," you can share the link and provide a widget for your website to share with others...it's that simple! 

 

SPREAD THE WORD

Let friends, family and colleagues know why you are participating and collect donations toward ending hunger in South Florida. With a 98% efficiency rating, your dollar stretches further; for every $10 donated to Feeding South Florida, we can provide 60 meals.

Since this is a virtual food drive, you can donate the value of the food items as if you were to buy it in the store to donate.

Some costs are:

  • Peanut Butter Jar ($3.99)
  • Cans of Tuna Fish, Pack of 4 ($3.50)
  • Macaroni & Cheese, Pack of 5 ($4.50)
  • Box of Pasta ($2.00)
  • Bag of Rice, Boil-In-Bag ($5.00)
  • Canned Pasta Meals, 4-Count ($4.00)
  • Gallon of Milk ($3.75)
  • Red Delicious Apples, 5-lb Bag ($7.00)
  • Bananas, 5-lb Bunch ($3.00)

 

You will not only provide funds to help end hunger, but you will also create awareness for the ever-important issue of food insecurity. It’s just another way we can help our neighbors in need.
