How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in Central Florida

We’re committed to supporting our employees’ health and safety and to addressing our local communities’ most critical needs. That’s why we donated $100 to local hunger-relief organizations for each Bank of America employee in the U.S. who let us know they’ve received a booster shot.

Through this effort, our team in Central Florida recently presented Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida with a check for $45,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Let’s build something together

Bank of America makes a real difference in our community. One of our key areas of focus is equipping people with the right skills for high-demand jobs. Partnering with a community college, we support an accelerated skills program that trains people for local engineering, distribution and healthcare jobs. Additionally, we’ve funded a training center close to transportation links, helping underserved communities access the initiative. We also partner with a nonprofit that has pivoted its hands-on culinary training from the hospitality industry to people experiencing food insecurity. Small businesses are a priority too: We help Hispanic entrepreneurs, as well as providing female business owners, especially women of color, with access to a no-cost education program. And when it comes to community health, we support a nonprofit that delivers essential medication and services to vulnerable neighborhoods.

The resurgence in Florida’s Black-owned enterprise

As Black-owned businesses continue to be particularly hard hit by the coronavirus, Black Business Investment Fund of Florida (BBIF), a CDFI with a mission to serve low- and moderate-income communities through business lending and training, has moved the entirety of its operations online. The organization is also delivering necessary funding to its clients—in just two months, BBIF provided nearly 300 loans through the SBA’s Payment Protection Program (PPP), helping businesses ranging from childcare centers to information technology firms to local landscapers.
