Advocate on behalf of Second Harvest

We need your voice! 

At Second Harvest Food Bank, we believe that on the day enough people decide to take action against hunger,  our local hunger relief need can be fully met.  Hunger is not about a shortage of food.  It is about a community’s will to pitch in and help one another meet this basic need.  Our vision is to inspire and engage the community to end hunger. 

Advocating for more support and services for our neighbors in need is a powerful way to make a difference.  While advocacy can take a variety of paths, it always begins with taking the time to become well-versed, fluent, and passionate about the complex issues of hunger and poverty. 

A simple and important way to advocate is to talk to the people you come into contact every day.  Friends, colleagues, family members, and others may not be aware of size and scope of the hunger problem, or about the effect it has on our entire community.  Your passion will inform and inspire them to want to take action to help, just as you do!

And there are often opportunities to share your passion with elected officials when legislation or other policy decisions are pending at the local, state, or federal levels.  The more these representatives of the people hear from their constituents about the unacceptability of hunger and food insecurity, the more they are likely to support helping struggling families.  Your voice can make that difference.

One of the best ways to advocate is to spend time familiarizing yourself with Central Florida’s hunger picture. A few statistics can be found here.   Other great ways to learn more involve signing up for one of our ‘Food for Thought’ tours, keeping up with our social media channels and signing up for our e-news. Your voice can help tell the story of hunger in our community.
