Who We Are
Food Brings Hope is an initiative founded by a visionary in our community. Forough B. Hosseini, chairperson of this initiative, is a local businesswoman who is dedicated to fulfilling her dream that all school-age children in the local community should be free from hunger.
Food Brings Hope is supported by a donor-advised fund committed to helping break the poverty cycle for homeless and economically disadvantaged children enrolled in Volusia County schools.
What We Do
Food Brings Hope achieves collaborative solutions for families with children that experience hunger due to homelessness, poverty, or unfamiliarity with community resources that provide nutritional assistance. We work closely with caring partners in the school district, social service agencies, and other friends who provide us with the benefit of their time and/or contributions.
Some of our initiatives are programs operating in Ormond Beach at Hinson Middle and Osceola Elementary; in Daytona Beach at Campbell Middle and Westside Elementary; and in New Smyrna Beach at New Smyrna Beach Middle. These are school-based programs that provide hundreds of at-risk students with meals, within the structure of a tutoring atmosphere and activities program.
