Second Harvest Food Bank

Written by Biggie on May 26, 2018

As a small brand and one man deli shop, I have the advantage of coming up with ideas and acting on them quickly.  When I wrote about Orlando becoming the Sandwich Capital of the U.S., I was able to get great local sandwich shop owners to sponsor the shirt and help me make the City of Sandwiches t-shirt a reality.  100% of the sales went to Second Harvest Food Bank

In just one week, I sold 85% of the shirts and I did not want to keep Second Harvest waiting until I sold the remainder of the shirts. I wanted to give them their check immediately. 

If you have never been to Second Harvest Food Bank it is a state of the art facility/distribution center that distributes to over 500 local nonprofits in over 5 Central Florida counties. 

Erica Spence gave me and family a tour of the facility and explained the many programs they offer. 

I also had the privilege to meet CEO, Dave Krepcho, and talk sandwiches with him! 

It is an amazing feeling to be able to help out those in need. We provided a check of $1,600 to Second Harvest Food Bank and that equates to over $14,400 in food for those in need.  (For every $10 contributed they distribute $90 worth of food.)

It is humbling to see how fortunate we may be and how every little bit helps those in need.  

I recommend to find something you are passionate about and maybe volunteer or fundraise for them.  I plan whenever possible to try to do more to help those in need.  

Some Orlando City of Sandwiches shirts are still available. Get yours today by clicking here.
