New partnership with All Faiths Food Bank provides food security for clients
Second Heart Homes has entered into a formal partnership with All Faiths Food Bank to provide a food security program for its clients.
"We're beyond grateful for All Faiths' generous support," said Megan Howell, founder and executive director of Second Heart Homes.
"The risks for malnutrition and nutrition-related health problems are high for homeless people and continue to be so even after they enter our program until they relearn self-care.
This new program will provide consistent access to fresh, nutritional food for a more balanced diet. Our clients cook their own meals and will love the inspiration that wider varieties of produce, meat, dairy and other ingredients will provide," Howell said.
All Faiths Food Bank is the only food bank and largest hunger relief organization in Sarasota and DeSoto counties. All Faiths has been a Certified Member of the Feeding America network since 1990. The nonprofit provides millions of meals each year through robust programs and partnerships with hundreds of charitable organizations throughout the community.
