2.2 million Floridians lack proper food access. Of those, over 660,000 are children. In the aftermath of Hurricanes Ian and Nicole, those numbers have grown as many impacted families are left wondering where their next meal will come from. For Giving Tuesday this year, the Florida Pediatric Foundation (FPF), the charitable foundation of the Florida Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (FCAAP), is raising funds to support Florida’s food banks in their Hurricane Ian and Nicole relief efforts through a donation to Feeding Florida.
As the only network capable of ramping up 300% during times of natural disaster, Feeding Florida’s food banks have the capacity and supplies needed to provide aid to people across the state. Through its partnership with the Division of Emergency Management, Feeding Florida can assist the State Emergency Response Team immediately, providing life-changing supplies such as pallets of water, ready-to-eat meals, first aid and more. This means your support helps those in the communities directly affected by the storms.
With your help, we can make a difference. Please make a donation of any size to Feeding Florida from now until Giving Tuesday, and together, we can help children in Florida have access to healthy food and other much-needed resources during current hurricane recovery efforts.
Thank you for helping us support Florida’s kids to be happy, safe, and healthy!
