The South Florida Hunger Coalition supports a network of food assistance, emergency and disaster response agencies, and children and senior programs throughout South Florida.
If you are an individual, or know an individual in need of food, please visit one of our local partner agencies.

The Food Stamp Program (SNAP) helps people with low-income, buy
healthy food. A food stamp household is normally a group of people who live together and buy food and cook meals together. If your household passes the Food Stamp Program's eligibility rules, the amount of food stamp benefits you get depends on the number of people in your household and how much money is left after certain expenses are subtracted.

Meals On Wheels South Florida provides Emergency Food Services to Seniors
as well as leading a regional effort to support the Summer BreakSpot feeding program
for youth 18 years and under. Other programs include the ability for homebound adults
in Broward County to request a grocery shopping volunteer who will shop for them once every other week at their local Publix Supermarket. There is no charge for the service, but customers must pay for their own groceries by setting up an account with Meals on Wheels South Florida. Donations for all services are requested.
