Aetna, a CVS Health Company, has made a grant to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida to help the organization expand its School Partnership Program. 

Nearly $115,150 has been given by Aetna to serve the needs of more than 60 participating schools in the program such as West Orange County Area schools Olympia High and Prairie Lake Elementary. 

This funding will help elementary, middle, high school, and post-secondary institutions fill their food pantries with non-perishable food items throughout the year. 

The CEO of the Second Harvest Food Bank is hoping to see more and more families in the food bank who are forced to make difficult decisions because of the higher cost of necessities. This latest grant will enable the food bank to provide nutritious food to students and their families.
