Two local organizations work with Second Harvest Food Bank to distribute meals ahead of the holidays

Lighthouse Central Florida and its Lighthouse Works division hosted a canned food drive to collect nonperishable items for the Second Harvest Food Bank.


Kyle Johnson, president and CEO of Lighthouse Central Florida, said they wanted to make things easier for those struggling, especially with Thanksgiving around the corner.

“With inflation impacting many household budgets, we wanted to make it easier for families to enjoy a holiday meal,” he said.

The organization said it was able to help provide nearly 100 meals for residents.
