About Feed The Need

Since launching in late March in direct response to COVID-19, Feed the Need Florida, a statewide public and private collaboration led by Orlando nonprofit 4Roots, has distributed more than one million meals.

Coming alongside various partners in the public and private sector, the program established a system to receive produce directly from Florida farmers, preserve and create jobs, and prepare fresh, nutritious meals served throughout Florida.

4Roots is an Orlando-based nonprofit community alliance founded by Chef John Rivers of the 4R Restaurant Group, dedicated to building a better food future and ending food insecurity in our community. In 2019, the organization began laying the foundation for its farm campus in the heart of Orlando to serve as a community crossroads where individuals and organizations work together to engage a holistic approach to food systems change, focusing on health, education, economic development, and sustainability.
