Siemens Foundation Donation to Help Provide One Million Meals* to Feeding America, Benefitting Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida  

The Siemens Foundation, through its partnership with Feeding America, today announced a donation of $100,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida to address the growing need to fight hunger in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. With these funds, the Orlando-based food bank is able to provide more meals to the Orlando community, home to the U.S. headquarters for Siemens Energy, Inc. 

This donation is a part of a larger national effort by the Siemens Foundation, to provide six million meals* to people in need in Atlanta, Chicago, Malvern, PA, Orlando, Sacramento, and Washington, DC. 

“Siemens has called the Orlando area home for more than three decades, with longstanding partnerships in the community,” said Tim Holt, member of the Siemens Foundation Board of Directors and Executive Board member and Labor Director at Siemens Energy. “This donation in our community represents the Siemens Foundation’s commitment to supporting families and individuals in need where we work and live.” 

Unemployment and the need for food assistance has soared in the wake of the pandemic. According to Feeding America, across the United States, more than 42 million people may face hunger because of coronavirus, including a potential 13 million children. Food insecurity is not an isolated issue, however, Americans financially impacted by the pandemic are having to choose between paying their mortgage or rent, critical medicine, childcare, and putting food on the table.   

Aligned with its mission to close the opportunity gap in America, the Siemens Foundation worked closely with Feeding America to provide support to local member food banks that  serve people in need. 

“We are so grateful for the longstanding partnership with Siemens to fight hunger throughout Central Florida,” said Dan Samuels, Director of Philanthropy at Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. “Since the start of the pandemic, Second Harvest has had to double the amount of food we distribute on a daily basis to keep up with the need. It’s donations like this one from the Siemens Foundation that make these relief efforts possible.”

Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida provides food to those in need across 6 counties, Orange, Osceola, Seminole, Lake, Brevard, and Volusia.  For nearly a year, Second Harvest has been distributing enough food for 300,000 meals a day – double pre-pandemic operation levels. Second Harvest estimates that 40% of the people seeking food assistance at mobile distributions are doing so for the first time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  In addition to typical distribution methods through food pantries and drive-up mobile distributions, Second Harvest has also created innovative solutions to fight hunger this year.  These include Bring Hope Home, a home delivery service, as well as meal boxes being delivered directly to the hardest hit communities.  It is estimated that one in six Central Floridians in at risk of facing hunger right now.

These recent donations reflect the Siemens Foundation’s ongoing commitment to advance economic, social and racial justice for all in the United States. Earlier this year, the Foundation invested $2 million in two Community Development Financial Institutions Funds (CDFI) that provide low-income, low-wealth, and other disadvantaged people with the capital they need for meaningful health and economic opportunity and development.

In 2020, the Siemens Foundation, including funding from the Siemens Healthineers Fund, donated $2 million to 20 community health centers across the country, enabling these centers to continue providing care for millions of Americans in underserved and uninsured communities. Other Siemens Foundation donations are supporting HBCUs in their plans to safely reopen campuses and efforts by the National Governors Association to reskill workers in the new economy. 

These efforts complement Siemens’ corporate social responsibility initiatives, including advancing diversity, equity and inclusion, as well as supporting communities as they combat and recover from the pandemic. Most recently, in partnership with the U.S Department of Commerce Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) Centers, Siemens donated $140,000 across seven Black-owned small businesses to build more resilient supply chains. In addition, the company’s employees are on the frontlines of COVID-19 response across the country helping to reopen schools, keep factories running, and strengthen the vaccine rollout.

Second Harvest fights hunger by serving almost 58 million meals throughout Florida every year

Every day, volunteers line up at Orlando’s Second Harvest food bank to prepare meals for Central Florida residents in need. Because much of the work in the region is seasonal and pays below the national average, one in six residents are considered food insecure, meaning they don’t always know where their next meal is coming from.footnote1

Food banks like Second Harvest are part of a national battle against hunger that feeds more than 46 million Americans every year. Ending food insecurity is a critical social issue in the United States and a key priority for Bank of America. In 2004, Second Harvest was the first Central Florida Neighborhood Builders award recipient, a Bank of America program that provides $200,000 in unrestricted funding and training for two organization leaders. When individuals and families don’t have to worry about where their next meal comes from, they gain the power to improve their future.

Now, helped in part by the Neighborhood Builder’s grant, Second Harvest can sustain its mission and provide food relief for nearly half a million Florida residents annually. What follows is a look into the daily effort that Second Harvest and its volunteers undertake to feed the working poor in Central Florida.

BJ's Wholesale Club Announces $100,000 Grant to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. -- BJ's Wholesale Club today announced a $100,000 donation from the BJ's Charitable Foundation to Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, a Feeding America® member food bank. The donation will help Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida's agency partners increase their capacity to distribute perishable food across the region.

BJ's grant to Second Harvest is part of BJ's Charitable Foundation's $1 million donation to Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief organization. Second Harvest is one of nine local food banks to benefit from BJ's $1 million donation, which is the foundation's largest single donation to any organization to date.

"BJ's is bringing a fresh approach to nourishing communities and helping families thrive, and we're proud to support Second Harvest," said Kirk Saville, executive director of the BJ's Charitable Foundation. "No one should have to worry about where to get their next meal, and we know that food banks face challenges in storing and distributing perishable foods. Our strategic partnership with Feeding America is focused on building capacity for fresh food at local food banks so we can work together to put an end to hunger in our communities."

With BJ's $100,000 grant, Second Harvest will purchase equipment, including freezers, refrigerators, pallet jacks, reusable grocery bags and forklift scales, to help its agency partners expand their cold storage capacity and increase the efficiency of distributing larger amounts of fresh produce. Additionally, Second Harvest and its agency partners will be able to donate and distribute significantly greater amounts of food in high need areas across Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake, Brevard and Volusia Counties.

Last year, Second Harvest distributed 52 million meals to partners programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens, women's shelters, senior centers, day care centers and Kids Cafes. In addition to feeding neighbors in need, Second Harvest offers a 14-week culinary training program to economically-challenged adults to place them in stable jobs and help them build a healthy financial future for their families.

"At Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, we strive to create hope and nourish lives through a powerful hunger relief network of 550 feeding partners, while multiplying the generosity of our caring community," said Dave Krepcho, President & CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. "Because of BJ's generous donation, Second Harvest will be able to continue fighting hunger and feeding hope by distributing fresh, healthy food to Floridians in need."

Since 2009, BJ's has provided ongoing support to Feeding America through the BJ's Charitable Foundation and BJ's Feeding Communities® program, helping local food banks successfully expand their programs to reach wider and more diverse audiences.

In addition to capacity building grants from the BJ's Charitable Foundation, BJ's has secured over 50 million pounds of donated food, including fresh produce, frozen meats and fish, baked goods and dairy items through the BJ's Feeding Communities® program.

"BJ's is bringing a fresh approach to nourishing communities and helping families thrive, and we're proud to support Second Harvest," said Kirk Saville, executive director of the BJ's Charitable Foundation. "No one should have to worry about where to get their next meal, and we know that food banks face challenges in storing and distributing perishable foods. Our strategic partnership with Feeding America is focused on building capacity for fresh food at local food banks so we can work together to put an end to hunger in our communities."

With BJ's $100,000 grant, Second Harvest will purchase equipment, including freezers, refrigerators, pallet jacks, reusable grocery bags and forklift scales, to help its agency partners expand their cold storage capacity and increase the efficiency of distributing larger amounts of fresh produce. Additionally, Second Harvest and its agency partners will be able to donate and distribute significantly greater amounts of food in high need areas across Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake, Brevard and Volusia Counties.

Last year, Second Harvest distributed 52 million meals to partners programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens, women's shelters, senior centers, day care centers and Kids Cafes. In addition to feeding neighbors in need, Second Harvest offers a 14-week culinary training program to economically-challenged adults to place them in stable jobs and help them build a healthy financial future for their families.

"At Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, we strive to create hope and nourish lives through a powerful hunger relief network of 550 feeding partners, while multiplying the generosity of our caring community," said Dave Krepcho, President & CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. "Because of BJ's generous donation, Second Harvest will be able to continue fighting hunger and feeding hope by distributing fresh, healthy food to Floridians in need."

Since 2009, BJ's has provided ongoing support to Feeding America through the BJ's Charitable Foundation and BJ's Feeding Communities® program, helping local food banks successfully expand their programs to reach wider and more diverse audiences.

In addition to capacity building grants from the BJ's Charitable Foundation, BJ's has secured over 50 million pounds of donated food, including fresh produce, frozen meats and fish, baked goods and dairy items through the BJ's Feeding Communities® program.
