Due to the current pandemic, the FRESHforce program has been postponed until further notice. Applications are currently closed; applications that have already been submitted will still be considered upon restarting the program.

Our goal is Food for Today. Food for Tomorrow. Food for a Lifetime. And FRESHforce creates the opportunity for individuals to achieve financial stability, and in turn, food security.

If you have questions about the program or are interested in becoming a FRESHforce partner, please contact Mike Perkins at mperkins@feedingtampabay.org or 773-710-5252.

Special thanks to our partners who help make this training possible.
