ForkLifters is Feeding Tampa Bay’s monthly giving program. Just as forklifts are central to our day-to-day operations, ForkLifters sustain our mission month in and month out. Families facing hunger need healthy food year-round, and monthly donations ensure that these families have enough to eat 365 days of the year. Since sustainable donations allow the opportunity to make a long-term impact on the lives of those facing hunger, monthly giving is the backbone of our operations.
Since its inception in October 2016, our ForkLifters program has made 521,120 meals possible for our neighbors in need. Russell and Jeanette Harms helped us pioneer this program in 2016 and 130 individuals have followed in their footsteps since. On average, our ForkLifters donate $50 monthly – this translates to a donation of 6000 meals each year. That’s 6000 fewer decisions to pay for bills instead of food and 6000 more times a child can focus on their studies instead of the rumbling of their tummies.
Our forklifts are crucial in transporting our products and our ForkLifters are crucial in transforming the lives of the food insecure. If you are interested in changing the life of someone in need, join our ForkLifters program today!
