About

Our Mission "To help those in need to transform their lives by providing food, crisis care, opportunities for education and employment, and a hand up to families, individuals and children who are fighting to break the cycle of poverty." History In 2001, Scott George had a sudden realization as he drove home through some of the most impoverished neighborhoods in Orlando. This inspired him do something, to help break the cycle of poverty, provide hope to those that struggle and elevate the foundation of his community. Pastor Scott and his wife Tammi put everything they had into making that vision a reality and the Destiny Foundation was born. Meanwhile, Austin Hunt and his wife Ginny were experiencing their own journey of faith. Both Austin and Ginny had experienced the realities of growing up in homes that struggled financially. It was this journey through life’s challenges that gave them the passion to help those needing a compassionate hand to guide them to a future of hope and stability. And so, in 2003 the Hunt’s founded Harvest Food & Outreach Center in the Treasure Coast of Florida. In the Fall of 2009, Austin and Scott joined forces in an effort to provide more services to a greater number of families, children and individuals struggling under the pressure of the recent economic firestorm. In October 2009 with the support of parent entity, Kingdom Harvest, Scott George founded a new organization, Community Food & Outreach Center, to provide education, food and hope in Central Florida. The Role of a Programs Committee Member Volunteer leaders are key to the successful operation of Community Food & Outreach Center and play a vital role in the lives of the clients served by the organization.
