In South Florida, food is a crucial component of the local economy.
Food and beverages are among the most important sources of income for businesses in the state.
The Food Bank of Palm Beach County alone is estimated to have $10 billion in revenues, and it provides assistance to more than 2.3 million people.
Food Bank founder and CEO Michelle Lohmer recently said that the Food Bank will not be able to keep up with the demand.
As a result, the Foodbank is in a difficult spot in the Sunshine State.
In order to keep its coffers full, Lohmers organization is seeking to help the local community revitalize its restaurants and restaurants are key to that effort.
Lohmers husband, Dr. William Lohms, is an internationally recognized physician, professor and professor emeritus at the University of South Florida School of Medicine.
In his new book, The Food Revolution: The Impact of the Food Economy on Our Lives, Dr Lohsers insights into the changing economy and the role of food in local communities are timely and relevant to the community.
His book is a companion to the new book he co-authored with South Florida food reformer and entrepreneur, Chris Baxley.
As the two men sit down with TIME to discuss the impact of food reform on Florida, they say it’s important for all of us to understand what’s happening and how to best help our communities heal.
The new book is available now at the Food and Beverage Bank website.
Dr. Lothmer says that the current economic environment is challenging for local businesses and people.
But the FoodBank can offer an immediate solution for those businesses and consumers that can support them and their families.
“We’re able to do this because we’re not dependent on what a single county does,” Lohmilers wife, Dr William Lothms, told TIME.
“The Food Bank has been in Florida for a long time.
We’ve been there for many years, and we’ve had a lot of experience.”
The FoodBank of Palm Springs Lohmyer says that his organization has seen an increase in the number of food pantries opening in the past few years.
“It is amazing how fast food and its impact on the local food system is coming back into the limelight,” he said.
“Food is a core component of our economy and I think the people of South Floridas are starting to recognize the importance of this.
We are seeing a huge increase in food pantry openings.
This is a great opportunity for people to take advantage of these opportunities.
People want to see the fruits of the labor of our hardworking members.”
The impact on local businesses The Lothmars say that many businesses have been hit hard by the economic downturn.
“I think that the local restaurants and food industry have been hurt in part because they are the ones that serve our consumers, so we are really grateful for them and they need our support,” Dr Lothmyer said.
The Lohmys have been working to make their communities more sustainable through the work of The Food Rebuilding Coalition.
The coalition was founded in 2015 to provide food and drink aid to the poorest in South Floridastas communities.
Since then, it has received over $8 million in grants and has helped hundreds of businesses throughout the state to improve their food and beverage operations.
“This is something we have been looking at since the beginning,” Dr. Joseph Lothmeber said.
LOHMERS’ IMPACT On the surface, the Lothmans business and restaurant operations seem to be working well.
The couple is well-known throughout the community, both for their work with the Food Banks of South Beach and the efforts to revitalize their local communities.
Dr Luhmeers wife says the support from local businesses has helped her family to be able afford to travel for the holidays.
“My husband is a very busy person, so he has been able to travel around to many different parts of the country and to places like Palm Beach and Miami,” she said.
They have also started a new restaurant called The Loo, which is located in a new space that was built to help support local businesses.
“People are coming back from their vacations, and they are able to spend their time at home,” she explained.
“They are also able to enjoy themselves again.”
LOHMYER SAYS HIS GOAL IS TO BE A LEADER In addition to his book and his role as president of the American Restaurant Association, Dr Wohms also serves as an ambassador for the American Red Cross, which helps people in need around the world.
Dr Womens goal is to be a leader in helping other people in his community, including South Florida.
He says that he is proud to have the opportunity to serve as an example of the kind of change that can happen when local businesses, families and individuals band together to rebuild their communities.
