FORT MYERS, Fla. - Floridant -- Elite DNA Therapy Services, a comprehensive mental and behavioral health service provider, is hosting a food collection drive May 16-31 to support area food banks in their efforts to feed local families during the summer.

According to pre-pandemic data from Feeding Florida, 3.1 million Floridians lack access to healthy food, 800,000 of which are children. Across the five-county region of Southwest Florida, more than 155,490 people are considered food insecure.

During Mental Health Awareness Month in May, Elite DNA is rallying the community to help reduce food insecurity in its local neighborhoods by collecting donations of non-perishable foods. In Southwest Florida, the drive will support Harry Chapin Food Bank, which serves the five-county region of Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties.

"Fear of being unable to feed your loved ones and worry over where your next meal will come from can have detrimental impacts on your mental health," said Elizabeth Dosoretz, LCSW, founder and CEO of Elite DNA Therapy Services. "In line with our mission to care for families, children, adolescents and adults, our practices are rallying the community to help do our part to ensure that kids and families are fed this summer."
