Feeding Tampa Bay and hunger relief organizations across Manatee County all have the same goal – to nourish those in need in our community. An ever-changing hunger landscape has required our role in Manatee County to evolve, but we remain committed to the shared vision of hunger relief with a strong focus on the people we collectively serve.
As we work towards a hunger-free Tampa Bay by 2025, we strive to ensure that anyone who has a want or need for a partnership, meal, service, or support in Manatee County will have access these resources. By rallying together, we can build a more accessible and sustainable path towards hunger relief for the community we serve.
Our investment in strengthening the pathways of distribution across Manatee County over the past two years illustrates our commitment to creating sustainable hunger-relief solutions for communities throughout our service territory. Feeding Tampa Bay has two desired outcomes for those we serve: health and capability. Achieving these two outcomes will change communities for the better.
Serving the community is at the heart of our collective missions, and by rallying around this shared vision, we can better serve our neighbors and our community.
We know that the majority of those we serve work one or more jobs to make ends meet and face constraints of time, money, and transportation in daily life. With this knowledge on hand, we are focusing on the people in need and the areas in which they reside. Food relief has to move to where our clients are and it must be available when they can obtain it. All future programs and partnerships are based on this fact.
It is our job to feed the 50,000 individuals facing hunger in Manatee County. This is how we leverage our network of partners to distribute the food to this area.
