Bank of America recently made a $45,000 donation worth 180,000 meals to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida to address food insecurity in the region, including West Volusia.

In Central Florida, Feeding America projected that roughly one in seven people and one in five children lived in households that were potentially food insecure in 2021.

As the pandemic continues, hunger-relief organizations in Central Florida and across the country are facing ongoing challenges, such as increased demand for their services and rising food prices.

Bank of America committed to donating a minimum of $25,000 in each of the company’s 93 markets to local nonprofit partners. Nationally, the bank has committed $10.6 million to food banks and hunger-relief organizations through this effort.

Since 2015, Bank of America has donated nearly $150 million toward hunger-relief efforts.
