Feeding Tampa Bay plays a vital role in responding to natural disasters – such as floods, tornadoes and hurricanes – throughout the state. As an affiliate of Feeding America, Feeding Tampa Bay accumulates and directs resources to other food banks in our network when national or local disasters take place.
As devastation unfolds in the Florida panhandle following Hurricane Michael, disaster relief services are a priority. To support our neighbors in this time of need, Feeding Tampa Bay focuses on raising funds for our sister food banks to the north, sending truckloads of emergency supplies to the affected area, and activating volunteers to help ready items for disaster relief packing.
Monetary donations are the best way to make an immediate impact as it allows the network flexibility to mobilize and respond quickly.
Canned, ready to eat items with pull-tops | Protein in pull-can tops
Snacks (granola bars) | Peanut butter | Toiletries
Paper goods | Diapers | Cleaning supplies
We are constantly assessing the needs of our neighboring communities impacted by the storm. Sort and pack donated food to ready boxes for disaster relief. Check our volunteer calendar regularly as new hurricane relief shifts become available.
If a storm strikes, check back for updated resources on emergency food distributions. Individuals and families in need of food assistance can call us at 813.254.1190 with any questions.
