Second Harvest North Florida Annual Report
SHNF Annual Report
A MESSAGE FROM the executive director People often say this, but I really do have the best job in the world. Every day at Second Harvest we get the chance to have a positive impact on someone’s life - children who wouldn’t otherwise be able to count on a snack, working families that have to put gas in the car instead of putting nutritious food on their tables, homebound elderly who are forced to decide between medicine or food. People are literally making choices like this every day. We are honored to help. But we will never satisfy the need or solve the problem of hunger by simply collecting and handing out cans of food. We know we have to create long-term, sustainable solutions that are closer to the source of the issue. So we have created two new programs that have already started delivering results and positively changing lives forever. Through our Community Gardens/Urban Agriculture Program, we are teaching those who live in the most food insecure urban, suburban and rural parts of our community how to grow their own food. It’s a sustainable way for families to create their own access to fresh, healthy food that fits their preferences and is readily available all year long. We are collaborating with local governments, social service agencies and community-based groups to get this done. Through the generous support of several community leaders we have created the Health Begins Before Birth Program in collaboration with hospitals and community organizations. Our registered dietitian works with low-income pregnant women on healthy cooking and eating, child care and more. In exchange for attending their monthly prenatal doctor visits, we provide expectant mothers with 70 pounds of healthy, nutritious food and guidance every other week. Food is the carrot to change the behavior and lifestyle before the baby arrives, and it’s working. If we can continue to move the needle on health issues such as obesity, diabetes and infant mortality, the whole community benefits. Hunger is a community-wide issue, with related healthcare, education, economic and social implications that will require a community-based response. Come join us. Give, volunteer, host a food drive, be an advocate for the food bank. You can support our work in a number of ways. Take the pledge to help end hunger in our community in our time. As you will read here, together it’s possible. Blessings to you all, Food is Sorted/Stored To reach our goal of 40 million pounds of food, we need to Since 1979, Second Harvest North Florida’s mission has been providing food resources to hungry people. Second Harvest works within a vast network of resources and partners – including food and financial donors, a dedicated staff, volunteers that help manage the work load and agencies that distribute food to families and individuals in need. Second Harvest North Florida is a proud member of Feeding America – the nation’s largest charitable hunger-relief organization. It has a network of 205 member food banks and food-rescue organizations serving all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. The Feeding America network secures and distributes more than 2 billion pounds of donated food and grocery products annually. grow outside of the current 30,000 square-foot Jacksonville warehouse as quickly as possible. We have limited areas for storage, volunteers, parking and loading dock bays. Cooler and freezer space are inadequate as well, especially given that produce, dairy and frozen foods are the fastest growing categories of sourced food. Adding trucks and drivers and doubling to twice-a-day the number of Mobile Pantry distributions into neighborhoods with the greatest need have helped. In-kind service of time, talent and equipment from local companies involved in related logistical businesses has allowed us to maximize our operations. Funding from a corporate foundation and Feeding America enabled us to implement a sophisticated computer inventory management system to automate warehouse processes and mapping capabilities. Geographically, the 17 counties that Second Harvest is responsible for serving cover 10,453 square miles. We serve those who are hungry through a network of almost 400 social service agencies, shelters and food pantries. THE BOTTLE NECK Even with all this progress, however, the facility is reaching overload in terms of handling more distributions of food in and out. Second Harvest has plans for moving into a larger warehouse in St. Augustine, which will allow us to gather and distribute food, especially fresh food from farms, closer to the source and relieve some of the demands on the Jacksonville warehouse. Ultimately, we need a larger, more efficiently designed warehouse in Jacksonville. We know what the need is 40 million pounds of food are needed, at a minimum, to end hunger in north Florida, based on Feeding America’s metric of minimum pounds of food per person in poverty. More than 342,000 individuals in the Second Harvest North Florida service area are deemed to be “food insecure” – which means they might not be hungry, but they also don’t know when they will eat again. Of that total, more than 117,000 are children. In the 17-county area we serve, 136,269 people are in a class of working poor with no access to federal or state benefits. Forty percent of those receiving food from Second Harvest are working families. More than 55 percent of all children attending Duval County Public Schools are eligible for free or reduced-fee meals. The need is great today and growing. Food is Distributed To reach 40 million pounds of food distributed – a gap of 18 million more pounds of food than that distributed in 2012 we will build on our partnerships with member agencies through investments in infrastructure, education and skills-building. We will continue to increase the number of Mobile Pantry distributions to get healthy food directly to hungry people. We will focus particularly on those programs that allow us to improve the health of hungry children. Our goal is to help feed all 117,000 children in our service area who are food insecure. We know where the food is We rescue food from retail grocery partners, farms and food processors that would otherwise be thrown away. We receive food from food drives, food manufacturers, food distributors and also from the U.S. government through The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). Fresh Food Programs More Fresh Food Second Harvest distributed 3,290,331 pounds of produce this year, compared to 184,00 pounds in 2009. As the result of community gleanings, contributions from the Florida Association of Food Banks, area farms (Blue Sky Farms, Barnes Farm, UF-IFAS, L&M Farms, Smiths Farms, Wilson Farms, for example) and our grocery retail partners (Walmart, Winn-Dixie, Publix, Sam’s Club, Target, BJ’s Wholesale, Whole Foods, Grassroots Natural Market), we continue to raise the amount of fresh food that is distributed to our member agencies. vegetables. A grant from the CarMax Foundation enabled Second Harvest to bring to life one property owner’s dream of turning an undeveloped piece of property into a productive neighborhood garden. With the help of more than 65 volunteers, Second Harvest created the 19-bed Patricia Aguilar Memorial Garden in Jacksonville Beach this past September and has already started harvesting fresh food which is donated to Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry (BEAM). Funding from The Blue Foundation for a Healthy Florida via the Healthy Jacksonville program is enabling Second Harvest to create a community garden in downtown Jacksonville. Using land donated by Edward Waters College and in collaboration with the Schell Sweet Community Center, Habitat for Humanity of Jacksonville and the Better Living Community Association, Second Harvest will bring much needed food to the New Town Success Zone. Second Harvest is also partnering with Seamark Ranch to expand its studentled agriculture program. The program manager will teach weekly educational sessions about nutrition and about how to sell produce at a farmers’ market. Second Harvest is also helping Compassionate Ministries expand a garden to feed hungry people. Children’s Programs Health begins Before Birth This unique program ensures that pregnant women in underserved neighborhoods receive healthy food and nutritional education to improve their health and the health of their baby. Second Harvest distributed over 18,000 pounds of food in 2012 to 30 pregnant women, all of whom delivered healthy babies. The program manager, who is a registered dietitian, took about 70 pounds of food every other week to the women’s homes, in addition to encouraging them to attend regular prenatal appointments. The overall goal of the program is to help reduce Duval County’s infant mortality rate. Mobile Pantries This program brings food directly to the neighborhoods that need the most assistance. A Second Harvest truck delivered two Mobile Pantries filled with 8,400 pounds of food, the equivalent of 7,000 meals, twice a day in 2012 to needy people in low-income areas. Mobile Pantries feed homebound seniors, expectant mothers and working families who don’t make enough to pay for basic necessities. An estimated 237 families benefit from each Mobile Pantry, with each family taking home 28 to 40 pounds of food. SNAP Outreach Second Harvest’s mobile benefits outreach coordinator assists low income residents in Flagler County with applying for and activating much-needed SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits. In 2012, 824 people received $1,030,212 in SNAP dollars, an economic impact of $1,854,381. The program helps working poor parents and their children, in particular. In November, Second Harvest established a partnership with Barnabas Center, Nassau County, to provide SNAP education, information and application access. The goal is to expand SNAP outreach into St. Johns County this year. BackPack PrograM Second Harvest with the help of many generous donors raised enough money to send 1,000 children home with food each weekend and over breaks during the 2012-13 school year. Our goal is to raise enough funds at $100 per school child to ensure that 2,700 children receive the nutrition they need to achieve their greatest academic success in the 201314 school year and beyond. Kids Cafe/Summer Lunch Kids Cafe, one of the nation’s largest free after-school meal service programs for children in low-income neighborhoods, offers a safe place for school children to find nourishment, meet role models and participate in activities to enhance both educational and social development. Second Harvest delivered snacks to serve nearly 20,000 children in 47 sites during the 2011-2012 school year and 37 sites in the 2012-13 school year. For the 2012 Summer Lunch program, Second Harvest served 60,700 meals to children at 29 different sites. GARDENS AND AGRICULTURE Second Harvest launched a Community Gardens/Urban Agriculture Initiative in July to increase underserved neighborhoods’ access to locally produced fresh fruits and everyone should be able to eat Carmelita and her son typify many of the families who receive help from Second Harvest. She is a single parent taking care of her son, Jeremiah. He is eight years old and does well in school. But you can see in Carmelita’s face that she worries about him. Carmelita used to work at the Navy Exchange and the naval base but with the economic downturn her jobs were downsized. Carmelita and Jeremiah are able to “shop” free at Beaches Emergency Assistance Ministry (BEAM), which receives donated food from Second Harvest. “BEAM allows us to self-select what we need,” Carmelita explains. “I can pick out what my son and I eat and nothing goes to waste.” When asked, Jeremiah explains that apples are his favorite food. Additional fresh food distribution has been an important growth point for Second Harvest. Many food insecure people don’t have access to healthy fruits and vegetables. Through a concerted effort that includes gleaning of area farms, Second Harvest has been able to increase its fresh food distribution to member agencies. no retirement Martha is approaching what people used to call “the golden years” yet there’s no retirement in the immediate future for this very active woman. She is a 62-year old widow who is raising her high schoolage granddaughter, going to college, and working for Learn to Read in St. Augustine through Senior WorkSource. There is definitely not a lot of free time in her life and the financial burden of raising a grandchild has led her to Second Harvest. “Last year I was earning $140 every two weeks,” Martha said. “All that money literally went to just feeding my granddaughter.” With the help of food from Second Harvest Martha was able to give her granddaughter a little bit more. As a past employee of a food pantry she has seen how that little bit more affects others. “I was working at a food pantry and I have seen people come in who were making big money but couldn’t find a job because of the economy,” she said. “They come in and they would be starving. After getting their food they would be in tears thanking us. I know the food pantry couldn’t do its work without Second Harvest.” Martha doesn’t let the challenges of life get her down. She has goals to get her college degree - this year she’s taking algebra and composition. She also has dreams for retirement. For now, there’s work, college and taking care of her granddaughter with the help of Second Harvest. “If you can help Second Harvest, do it, please,” adds Carmelita. “If you have anything you can donate, donate. If you can come help, help. Participate. Do it. Because everybody needs help sometime and everybody should be able to eat.” “To be a single parent and not have food, it kind of hurts when you can’t feed your child.” “If it hadn’t been for Second Harvest we would have gone hungry even with food stamps.” A special thanks to the following for supporting Second Harvest’s programs to improve the It takes an army of supporters - from individuals who volunteer to foundations that award grants to large corporations that supply time, treasure and talent - to make Second Harvest North Florida as successful as it is. Second Harvest also conducts three signature events to engage the community in turning a dollar into something more filling. Events Jacksonville FOODFIGHT The 22nd Annual FOODFIGHT raised more than $92,000 while attracting more than 1,200 attendees for great camaraderie and tasty treats served by 70 restaurants and vendors. Empty Bowls Luncheon The 28th Annual Empty Bowls luncheon presented by Bank of America raised a record $82,569 with 1,200 attending. In addition to selecting their favorite bowl, those in attendance were inspired by a video that highlighted how Second Harvest helps working families combat hunger. health of children and their families: Programs BackPack Program 37 individuals, 16 companies, 2 churches and 3 community organizations. The largest supporters of the BackPack Program were EverBank, Jim Moran Foundation, Golden Pearl Foundation and The Grainger Foundation. Jacksonville Jaguars Taste of the NFL Ann and Shad Khan brought the Taste of the NFL back to Upper West Touchdown Club at EverBank Field this year , with the area’s best chefs serving 250 guests a scrumptious six-course meal. The event raised more than $160,00 to help Second Harvest feed hungry people in north Florida. “Shad and Ann Khan were pleased to be the honorary hosts of the 2012 Taste of the NFL at EverBank Field. Our support of Second Harvest North Florida throughout the year, including the Taste of the NFL, the Thanksgiving food drive with the fans at the stadium and the annual food distribution at Christmas in partnership with PepsiCo and WinnDixie, provides thousands of meals for families throughout the year. The Jaguars players, coaches and staff are blessed to make Jacksonville our home and it’s a privilege to do our part through Second Harvest to help provide food to families in need in our community.” Mark Lamping, Jaguars Team President.

Every Tuesday and Thursday they arrive like clockwork to take a five hour shift. Lisa is in a wheelchair, the result of a traffic accident when she was a teenager, but the warehouse is laid out in such a way that Lisa can navigate easily. The staff counts on Lisa and Rosa to keep the bread racks and coolers up-todate and organized. Rosa worked with Lisa’s sister at the American Red Cross. When Lisa moved from Hawaii to Jacksonville, Rosa was retiring from her Red Cross job. It was a perfect fit for Rosa to become a regular caregiver since she had worked with Lisa’s sister. Rosa explains how they came to Second Harvest. “We had been volunteering at another nonprofit but Lisa’s sister and I wanted her to have an opportunity through volunteering to meet more people. Lisa is such a people person. We did some research and found Second Harvest.” Lisa calls this her “job” and she loves to meet the staff and representatives of the member agencies that shop for food at Second Harvest. She believes it is a blessing for her to be able to give back. donating treasure, time and talent wells fargo Philanthropy involves donating time, treasure and talent. And large organizations, such as Wells Fargo, are often asked to contribute to many causes. Second Harvest North Florida is honored to be among that list. Wells Fargo is an organization that has donated over 60,000 hours of volunteer time to Florida nonprofits and more than $11 million. Wells Fargo employees are regular volunteers in the warehouse and have supported the food bank through cash donations for several years. This year they launched what hopes to be an annual partnership to sponsor the Thanksgiving meal distribution. Wells Fargo volunteers staffed all the behind-the-scenes work that had to be done to pack, sort and create food bags for 2,000 families. Each family received a turkey and all the fixings for a Thanksgiving meal at a Nov. 16 event that included Winn-Dixie and Black Diamond Performance Reporting. This activity alone fed an estimated 8,000 people for the holiday. Besides the Nov. 16 giveaway, Wells Fargo employees were instrumental in working with one of Second Harvest’s member agencies, the Schell Sweet Center, to personally bag and deliver food to homebound seniors. Wells Fargo also distributed Thanksgiving meals in St. Johns County. Rosa adds, “The people are amazing to work with. They love Lisa and Lisa loves to be able to get around the warehouse to help.” Second Harvest is grateful to Lisa and Rosa for their incredible support. “I like the good feeling I get from helping others.” “Second Harvest is one of 16 food banks in Florida that Wells Fargo supported financially this year,” said North Florida Regional President Scott Coble. “We know the struggle that all food banks are experiencing with less resources to meet increased demands. That’s why we felt these donations were so important. We’re committed to helping meet the needs of our communities.” “This year, in addition to our financial contributions, more than 100 Wells Fargo volunteers logged just under 400 hours assembling and distributing 2,000 Thanksgiving dinners in Jacksonville and St. Augustine,” said Connie Smith, Wells Fargo’s community affairs manager for Florida. “Within hours of posting the volunteer opportunity, I had more than enough volunteers. We appreciate the opportunity to partner with Black Diamond Performance Reporting and Winn-Dixie to provide a traditional Thanksgiving dinner to so many in our community. We look forward to working together on future events.” Second Harvest depends on private support to fulfill our mission to end hunger in north Florida. Philanthropic dollars are the lifeblood of our overall food bank operation, which in turn enables us to provide food and resources to our partner food banks and member agencies.
