A volunteer at a food drop at the Church of God in Bithlo passes out fresh bread donated from Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. Of the 93,000 meals they’ve provided so far this year, 80 percent of the food is considered nutritious.

Some food banks are holding food drops to bring food and other health-related events to the neighborhoods where they live in an attempt to reach more high-risk seniors.
