SOUTH FLORIDA HUNGER COALITION
We work to eradicate hunger by acting as a resource and convener for hunger-related initiatives and programs
NO EMPTY PLATES
The South Florida Hunger Coalition was founded by The Coordinating Council of Broward County in 2001. This ambitious countywide effort was originally driven by a strategic plan designed to fill and maintain the food pantries throughout Broward county. By 2004, the Children's Services Council of Broward County had added its support to the work of the Coalition.
Today, the South Florida Hunger Coalition (SFHC) is an independent, 501(c)3 regional nonprofit, who with the support of dozens of community partners, coordinates the efforts of more than 75 hunger-related agencies across South Florida, including Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties, as well as activities in Monroe, Collier, Lee, Hendry, Martin and St. Lucie counties.
We work to eradicate hunger by acting as a resource and convener for hunger-related initiatives, such as the mobile Summer BreakSpot feeding program in Broward County; weekend backpack programs targeting homeless, at-risk and teen students; community and school-based garden projects; food rescue and recovery programs, as well as other innovative hunger-related initiatives.
SFHC further advocates and lobbies at the local, state and national levels for greater utilization and access to existing federal programs such as school breakfast, school lunch, after-school snacks, after-school dinners, summer meals, and expanded nutrition education. We provide direct technical guidance, support and assistance to implement and expand these programs.
