Generation WORKS: Feeding Northeast Florida

As we prepare for Generation WORKS on February 4, 2017, we will be featuring some of the agencies and projects we will be working with to transform the city of Jacksonville and the lives of the people who are part of our neighborhoods and communities.

 

Feeding Northeast Florida

Feeding Northeast Florida helps local children & families, seniors, and veterans that struggle to put food on the table. Working with local grocery stores, manufacturers, and farms they rescue high-quality food that would normally be wasted and transform it into meals for those in need.  By connecting millions of pounds of rescued food to a network of over 180 social service agencies– like City Rescue Mission, The Sulzbacher Center, and The Salvation Army- these hunger-relief partners are able to provide not only food to those in need, but services that can help these families and individuals end the cycle of poverty- including job training or placement, low-cost childcare, SNAP benefits, medical care, affordable housing, and counseling. In 2015, Feeding Northeast Florida provided nearly 12.5 million meals to our network of social service agencies in eight counties throughout Northeast Florida.

During Generation WORKS we will be working to inspect, sort, and pack food to be distributed to agencies that feed those who are hungry.   This project is presented by CIT.
