September 15th, 2022 · Leave a Comment

Morgan & Morgan recently announced that it has donated $100,000 to Feeding Northeast Florida (FNEFL) in support of their mission to solve hunger in Northeast Florida.

With this donation, Morgan & Morgan will be the title sponsor for FNEFL’s annual premier fundraising event, Empty Bowls, where community and business leaders come together for a simple luncheon of soup and bread to bring attention to the issue of hunger in the region. Morgan & Morgan will additionally be the presenting sponsor of Harvest Helpings, food distribution events held throughout eight counties to provide families with a full Thanksgiving meal.

Due to inflation, the rising cost of food, utilities, and housing an unprecedented amount of families and individuals are facing food insecurity and financial hardship. According to FNEFL, one in seven adults are facing hunger and one in five children will go to bed hungry.

Feeding Northeast Florida is the largest, most efficient food bank serving Baker, Bradford, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Nassau, Putnam & St. Johns Counties. In collaboration with retail partners, manufacturers, and farms, FNEFL is able to meet the needs of Northeast Florida families and individuals who struggle to put food on the table.

Through innovative direct-service programs and partnerships with schools, senior centers, and veteran and active-duty military organizations, last year they were able to serve over 260,000 people and distribute an estimated 31.9 million pounds of food which equates to 73,000 meals per day.  To learn more about how to support Feeding Northeast Florida, visit https://feedingnefl.org.
