While Feeding South Florida's (FSF) mission is simple?to end hunger in South Florida?the steps it takes to achieve this goal are anything but. The organization, which is part of the Feeding America network, leads hunger and poverty advocacy efforts and partners with approximately 350 non-profit agencies to provide nutritious meals to people in need. As the largest food bank in Florida?and the sole food bank for Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe counties?FSF serves nearly 1,000,000 individuals. One of FSF's distribution programs is the Mobile Food Pantry, which brings fresh fruits, vegetables, bread, and dairy to food deserts in South Florida. In the past year alone, FSF distributed approximately 35 million pounds of food to people in need.

After Dr. Angel Perez passed away due to kidney cancer, his wife and children discovered a way to honor his memory. Sonia Perez and her daughters were hosting a recreational picnic for his former patients, many of whom were affected by congenital heart defects (CHD) or childhood acquired heart disease, when they realized that these patients and their families needed somewhere they could gather and receive non-medical financial, emotional, and social support outside the hospital. The Perez family founded Angel's Pediatric Heart House to fill this need. The organization provides free programs and services to South Florida children living with CHD such as financial support during a child’s hospital stay; family fun day social events, which provide opportunities for cardiac kids and their families to come together; monthly hospital outreach to three area children’s hospitals and a free infant items donation program through a partnership with a national baby store retailer. Its programs also function as a tool for group healing. Mommy and Me groups provide opportunities to gain support, the Miles and Millas program delivers care packages to kids undergoing heart surgery, and a national CHD awareness campaign spreads encouragement to families and distributes Heart Shadow Buddies to kids in hospitals.

For half a century, World Wildlife Fund (WWF) has worked to protect the planet's natural environment and promote eco-friendly living. WWF has set a goal to conserve 15 of the world's most ecologically-important regions by the year 2020. The organization aims to achieve these goals in part by focusing its work on priority places?such as the Amazon, Coral Triangle, and Himalayas?and species?such as tigers, rhinos, and marine turtles. Its projects are rooted in science and extensive research, and five million WWF members around the world help enact them for the benefit of both humanity and the planet.
