Because no one
should go hungry.


Trinity Cafe, a program of Feeding Tampa Bay, is a free, full service restaurant for those in need of a healthy meal. At Trinity Cafe, tables are set with cloths, centerpieces, plates and silverware. Guests are seated at tables much like a restaurant, while volunteers engage in conversation and serve a 3-course, chef-prepared meal. We restore a sense of dignity to lives turned bleak by the streets, poverty or need through nutritious meals and compassion.

The evolution of Trinity Cafe. Founded in 2001, Trinity Cafe has served more than 1.5 million meals with dignity, compassion, love and respect. Its traditional restaurant-style model provided an average of 500 meals to the community each day, but a desire to do even more surfaced. The hunger landscape seemed to be changing rapidly, with more people in need of food assistance than ever before.

As leaders in the hunger relief realm, Feeding Tampa Bay and Trinity Cafe began talks on how to join forces to make a bigger impact. Dedicated to alleviating the issue of hunger, Feeding Tampa Bay and Trinity Cafe merged in January of 2019. As a program of Feeding Tampa Bay, Trinity Cafe has begun the exciting transition to becoming a “Community Empowerment Center” – creating full service, hunger relief solutions that begin around the table. Guests enjoy a hot, plated meal around the table, but now have access to prepared to-go meals, client choice food pantries, fresh produce pantries, and SNAP registration assistance.

Trinity Cafe’s model and kitchen will be the centerpiece of expansion across Feeding Tampa Bay’s 10-county service area. Together, our goal is to provide meals for today, meals for tomorrow, and meals for a lifetime.
