Macbeth Studio (Website) received a PPP loan during the pandemic, and rather than sitting idle, decided to give back the value of the loan in in-kind video production to local non-profits and small businesses that were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 shutdown. Bungalower Media has joined forces with Macbeth Studio to share those stories.
The first of those five videos focuses on Hearts, Hands, and Hope (Facebook | Website), a local organization that supports children and families by providing free meals. While primarily focused on Seminole County, they are quickly growing and expanding their programming with a short-term goal of providing 10,000 meals a week to families in need.
Seminole County has three areas that have been designated as food deserts; Sanford, Altamonte Springs, and Oviedo. A food desert is an area that has low access to a supermarket or a grocery store so people are more prone to eat fast and processed foods. Hearts, Hands, and Hope volunteers provide bags of non-perishable items for children to bring home which provides enough food for families of four to six people for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
