Celebratory Charity


Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is a powerful and efficient local hunger relief network that provides more than 52 million meals each year for struggling low-income families, children, seniors, homeless, and others. The organization also helps transform lives and create financial stability by training people for careers in the culinary field. The Walt Disney World Wine & Dine Half Marathon weekend will help to create sustenance and hope for our most vulnerable Central Florida neighbors.


Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida uses the Walt Disney World Wine & Dine Half Marathon as a channel to create awareness with caring supporters, and to raise much-needed funds to support the growth of its mission. For every $1.00 contributed to Second Harvest, up to $9.00 worth of groceries can be distributed for people in need.
