Feeding South Florida goes beyond just providing food. We ensure its quality food that meets Feeding America’s healthy food standards known as “Food to Encourage” or “F2E.” More than 70% of Feeding South Florida’s food distributed is considered F2E – food that’s aligned with MyPlate nutrition standards.
