In this episode, we connect with Dave Krepcho, CEO of the Second Harvest Food Bank in Orlando Florida. We’ll learn how Dave is going far beyond what you’d normally expect from a food bank and making in-roads in the fight against hunger.
The Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida is in Disney World’s neighborhood. For most of us who don’t live in Orlando or Central Florida, we don’t consider the world beyond the theme park. But, of course, there is a world beyond the theme park and for many people who live there, like so many other parts of the world, they struggle to get food on the table.
Dave Krepcho came into being the CEO of Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida in 2004 not sure he wanted to do it. Not because he didn’t want the job, but because he saw a good and stable organization and didn’t want to do anything to take away from the success they were already enjoying. With that humble beginning and through several significant innovations and growth, Dave is leading the charge to end hunger.
Among some of the successful innovations Dave has led at Second Harvest are
- On site professional chef training and job placement
- Catering services
- On site community space
- The creation of deep relationships and medical practitioners to deliver a very successful nutritional training program for the people they serve
