Incredible Dining for an Incredible Cause
In 2021, Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining will benefit two organizations that are helping to combat homelessness in Central Florida: Pathlight HOME and IDignity. Visit Orlando will also allocate a small percentage of funds to a local organization in each Orange County district that also supports this cause. Accordingly, you’re not just helping yourself to a great meal when you participate in Visit Orlando’s Magical Dining — you’re also helping the Central Florida community at large.
Using the “Housing First” philosophy, Pathlight HOME has helped house more than 7,000 individuals since its inception 29 years ago, providing affordable housing to low-income and homeless individuals in Central Florida. Founded in 2008, IDignity assists disadvantaged Central Floridians in obtaining an ID and has served over 24,000 individuals in Orange County.
