Hunger Does Not Discriminate
Since 2012, we have seen a dramatic increase in the cost of living but a stagnation in wages and high-paying jobs. The average household food budget shortfall has increased 20 percent and families and individuals who were once donors are now standing in line at soup kitchens and food pantries. Those in need of food assistance include children, the working poor, older adults, veterans, physically and mentally disabled, and the homeless.
Through a network of more than 400 nonprofit partner agencies and direct service programs, Feeding South Florida sets the table for the 784,110 individuals who struggle with food insecurity throughout Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties.
