Nearly One Ton of Food Collected During "Hunger Action Month"

BROWARD COUNTY, FL – The generous donations from Broward County employees and visitors resulted in 1,875 pounds of food, which provides approximately 1,560 meals.  

Broward County partnered with Feeding South Florida to promote September as “Hunger Action Month” with the goal to end hunger one bite at a time. 

“We set the challenge and collected more than last year.  I want to thank everyone who contributed.  This shows the spirit and generosity of our community,” said Broward Commissioner Dr. Barbara Sharief. 

Commissioners proclaimed September 10th as “Go Orange Day” and collected food during September and October through the County’s year-round 365 Food Drive.

According to the South Florida Hunger Coalition an estimated 13 percent of Broward’s population is worried about where their next meal is coming from, many are children.

Broward County hosts a year-round 365 Food Drive with donations going to a variety of food pantries and charitable organizations that provide food for those in need. Drop off locations can be found here.

Feeding South Florida has many ideas and opportunities for individuals, companies and organizations to help the hungry by donating money or food, hosting fundraising events, volunteering or advocating. More information can be found at
