A New Partner Helps Second Harvest With Summer Meals
Tallahassee's Moore communications firm joins the effort to deliver 20,000 meals to kids who live in the city's poorest zip code.
The pandemic may have changed the way the program works. But thanks to a new partnership with a Tallahassee company, Second Harvest of the Big Bend will be able to expand its Food on the Move program this summer.
The partnership between Second Harvest and the Moore communications firm was announced on Wednesday, June 10. Second Harvest CEO Monique Ellsworth said it will mean a total of 11,000 meals going to families in Tallahassee's impoverished 32304 zip code this summer.
"The partnership with Moore Communications, what they're doing is supporting us as we move about the community in our brand new, refrigerated Sprinter van and distribute this food to children in need."
Ellsworth stressed many of area's lowest-income neighborhoods are in even greater need now because of the economic downturn resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.
Officials with Moore say the firm is also underwriting an additional 10,000 meals nationally through the Feeding America network
