A Spoon Full of Hope

On October 30, 2018, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida became the first Feeding America network member across the United States to launch a signature product line – A Spoon Full of Hope.

This signature line includes a tomato basil Soup for Good; mangrove, orange blossom, palmetto, and wildflower Honey for Good; shortbread Cookies for Good; and a healthy Lunch for Good. One hundred percent of the proceeds goes directly to support the 16-week Culinary Training program, which provides at-risk and economically disadvantaged adults no-cost culinary and life skills training to pursue a sustainable career in the food industry. 

The Culinary Training Program also benefits from these Second Harvest Food Bank Programs:
