The SEPC is proud to support non-profit organizations that help children and families in need across the southeast. With the help of our members, we are able to contribute volunteers hours, product donations, and financial support year-round to help make a difference in the lives of local children and families. We thank all of our members who are actively involved in our community outreach efforts, and invite anyone who is interested to get involved!

The SEPC proudly supports the following charities:

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

In the SEPC’s continuing effort to help fight childhood obesity and educate the public about the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables, we are proud to partner with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Strong4Life program, a wellness movement designed to ignite societal change and reverse the epidemic of childhood obesity and its associated diseases in Georgia. Strong4Life reaches families through public awareness, policy change efforts, school programs, healthcare provider programs, community partnerships and more, with a goal of improving family nutrition, making physical activity habits fun, and providing parents and caregivers the support they need to accomplish their goals.

The SEPC supports the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Strong4Life Superhero Sprint and Strong Legs Runs each year in June and November in Atlanta through the donation of volunteer hours, products, and fundraising. We are always in need of products for our tent, hands on help at the event, or participants/fundraisers!

Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children

Located in Orlando, FL, Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children is a sanctuary of hope and healing. The most advanced technology, coupled with compassion and dedication have made Arnold Palmer Hospital one of the most trusted names in children’s healthcare worldwide. With a 158 pediatric beds, careful attention has been paid to creating a cheerful, comforting environment to minimize stress and generate smiles. The SEPC is proud to provide funding each year to help make sure those visiting this hospital get the best care possible.

Paul Anderson Youth Home

The Paul Anderson Youth Home is home to Paul Anderson Ministries, existing to serve troubled youth between the ages of 16 – 21 from all over the country, providing a Christian home environment in which they can rebuild their broken lives through Recovery, Restoration and Redemption. The SEPC has been able to help donate funds and bring projects like the Goodness Garden to life to help supply fresh fruits and vegetables, and teach the boys about horticulture and the basic care and the nurturing needed to grow produce. We have also provided resources and man hours to build a chicken coop for the boys and continue to support the solid foundation and life education PAYH is instilling in each and every one of the young men that is there.

Society of St. Andrew

Through our partnership with Society of St. Andrew we are able help do our part to help feed America’s hungry. As the premier food rescue and distribution ministry, the Society of St. Andrew believes that all of us working together can eliminate world hunger, beginning by ending hunger in America. In addition to financial support, the SEPC is honored to work with the Society of St. Andrew to provide truckloads of food to one of our other benefitting charities, RAMP in rural Appalachia, as well as donate all leftover food from Southern Exposure each year to help those who are hungry in the Southeast. To date, the SEPC has become the largest distributor of fresh fruits and vegetables to the needy in the Tampa and Orlando areas, feeding over 300 families!

RAMP

Martin County, Kentucky lies in the heart of rural Appalachia, home to some of the most impoverished people in the United States. To this day, access to healthy food and economic opportunity in Martin County is scarce. Moreover, Martin County’s isolation makes it difficult to access federal and other assistance programs: currently there are little to no human or social services available in the area.

RAMP (Rockin’ Applachian Mom Project) works to identify critical needs and create solutions focusing on nutrition, economic development, and emergency relief intervention, with a special focus on children and families in Martin County. Providing access to healthy food and economic opportunity in Martin County is scarce, but through our partnership with RAMP, the Society of St. Andrew, and very dedicated and giving members of the SEPC, we are able to provide fresh produce to this undernourished area a few times a year. If your company is interested in donating fresh produce for a RAMP delivery, please contact us at info@seproducecouncil.com.
