Did you know...

Autumn brings 25,000 raptors through the Florida Keys as they migrate south. Hundreds end up dehydrated, unable to continue without assistance.

How you can help

The Keys are a hugely important part of the fall migration, especially for raptors and songbirds. They track the Keys on their way down. It is their last stop to eat and drink before taking off en route to their winter destinations, and without proper nourishment many will die. Food at the end of its useful life provides sustenance when no longer appropriate for human consumption.

About this nonprofit

One of the largest food pantries in all of South Florida, SOS believes that the most efficient way to deal with the epidemic of hunger facing our country is to use that food which would otherwise be wasted to help those in need. We do this through an organized system of food recovery. Our refrigerated trucks scour the community for donated food that is then redirected to those in need.
