Central Florida's Faces of Hunger 2014 Report

Central Florida's Faces of Hunger 2014 was conducted by Second Harvest Food Bank in partnership with Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. The study surveyed hundreds of local food assistance programs and their clients. It documents client household demographics, and the challenges that Central Florida’s food assistance clients face. Among other things this study is the first that assesses the prevalence of food insecurity among past and active members of the U.S. Military.

One thing that is clear from the results of this study is that the face of hunger in Central Florida is probably not unfamiliar to most of us.  It includes people who have jobs, raise families, pay taxes, work toward education, and struggle with health problems.  The choices they face in order to put food on the table are daunting.  We hope that these findings help to dispel some of the myths and stereotypes that can creep into public perception of who needs help.
