The Osceola County Food Bank provides food bags to seniors, disabled adults and disadvantaged families. The Osceola Council on Aging began providing food assistance programs to the Osceola County community more than 40 years ago and has evolved to provide nutrition assistance to more than 40,000 needy households every year.
In 2012, emergency food baskets were distributed to 48,785 disadvantaged seniors and families through 20 local food pantries. 558,709 pounds of food was also served to low-income residents.
The Council leverages TEFAP USDA foods with locally donated foods and funded social service programs to provide more comprehensive food packages and services to meet increasing demands in the number of low-income households served in our community.
The Osceola County Food Bank relies on community volunteers to assist by donating food through community or work place food drives and monitory donations.
The Osceola Council on Aging works with local community partners like the Harmony Institute and Osceola County Grown to purchase crops for use in meal production and for food distribution to disadvantaged Osceola County residents.
