Food insecurity is increasing in Central Florida! 1 in 7 people, among them 1 in 5 children, cannot afford basic food staples. To keep up with the increasing demand for food assistance in our community, JFS Orlando has been expanding the Pearlman Food Pantry and the project is nearly complete. (Please note: Despite construction, the Pantry continues to serve food to clients in need.) Check back periodically for project updates and pictures!
