The Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida collects, stores and distributes donated food to more than 500 partner agencies in six Central Florida counties. We fight hunger in Central Florida by: providing access to food and other grocery products; promoting and supporting the development of our partner agencies; mobilizing leaders and communities by bringing visibility to the invisible problem of hunger and poverty; and by developing more holistic and county specific solutions to hunger. In fiscal year 2011-2012, we provided nearly 36 million pounds of food resources for our local community, which translates into approximately 24 million meals for people in need.

Note: The Impact & Results score currently has no effect on the nonprofit's Star Rating.

The Impact & Results score is a measure of how well a nonprofit delivers on its stated mission. To issue a score, Charity Navigator estimates the actual impact the nonprofit has on the lives of those it serves, and determines whether it is making good use of donor resources to achieve that impact. Learn more about our Impact & Results methodology here.

Program Activities
Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida primarily collects, warehouses and distributes food to front-line organizations like food pantries and soup kitchens. It also manages smaller programs that serve meals and provide groceries directly to beneficiaries.
Impact Statement
$2 provides a meal to a person in need.
Assessment Benchmark
Impact & Results scores of food distribution programs are based on the cost of a meal relative to the cost that a food-secure person incurs to buy a meal in that county. Programs receive an Impact & Results score of 100 if they are less than 75% the cost of a meal and a score of 75 if they are less than 125%. If a nonprofit reports impact but doesn't meet the threshold for cost-effectiveness, it earns a score of 50.
Methodology
ImpactMatters analyzed publicly available data to rate the cost-effectiveness of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida.
Data Source
Outcome data collected during the program. Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida publicly reports the amount of food it provides.
Method for Attributing Outcomes
We assume that the distribution of a meal from one nonprofit's food distribution program does not diminish the amount of food distributed by any other (neighboring) food distribution program. This “counterfactual” assumption about the amount of food distributed in the absence of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida’s food distribution program implies that the benefit of a meal to a beneficiary in need constitutes a net gain; the gain is not offset by reductions in food provided to other beneficiaries in need. We therefore set the counterfactual to zero.
