How we’re boosting the fight against hunger in South 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 South Florida recently presented Feeding South Florida with a check for $120,000Footnote*. We’re proud to be able to help our community as we work together to move forward.

Hear from Lori Chevy, President of Bank of America Fort Lauderdale, about our role in keeping Fort Lauderdale moving forward.

Let’s build something together

Beautiful Fort Lauderdale, known as “the Venice of America,” is visited by people from all over the world each year, making tourism and hospitality the root of our economy. One of the biggest challenges we face here is a shortage of jobs that pay income sufficient to support livelihoods despite our high cost of housing. So Bank of America is focused on funding organizations offering programs that support affordable housing. This also helps combat homelessness and assists in meeting the needs of our low-income seniors. When the health crisis hit, we were able to offer resources to organizations that provided shelter to the homeless and food for so many in the community who were suddenly unemployed. We proudly supported and volunteered at the development of an affordable housing community with more than 70 homes. On the jobs front, we're partnering with nonprofits and a local college to bring workforce training directly into minority neighborhoods throughout Broward County. Students can earn in-demand certificates and work with success coaches who provide guidance needed to enroll in college classes.

Career opportunities that are close to home

Focusing on South Florida neighborhoods with high unemployment rates, low incomes and low educational attainment levels, Broward Unlimited Potential is an outreach program that offers college classes, workforce training and certificate-based courses free of charge – right in the communities where workers live. Through training and classes that lead to credentials, certifications or degrees, the program aims to increase economic and social mobility in local neighborhoods.

By the Numbers: Fighting Food Insecurity in South Florida

Local hunger-relief organizations like Feeding South Florida have faced new challenges amidst the coronavirus pandemic to ensure that homes in need continue to have meals on the table. One way they’re doing it is paying farmers to harvest crops despite the lack of commercial demand, and by purchasing directly from distributors.
