ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Second Harvest Food Bank provides food to dozens of pantries around Central Florida.
And recently the need for meals exploded.
Second Harvest said its Food Finder tool is being used more now than ever before. The online program helps you locate all the pantries in your area.
The food bank has been doing more than 300,000 meals every day out of their warehouse, double the 150,000 deliveries it was making at the beginning of the year.
So far, Second Harvest has been able to keep up with demand thanks to donations from the public, and help from local governments.
Both Osceola and Orange County have provided hundreds of dollars in Federal Cares Act funds to fight food insecurity amid the ongoing crisis.
