Fighting food waste across Tampa Bay

Our Tampa Bay food bank works together with retailers, manufacturers, farmers, and distributors to combat food waste and ensure that nourishing meals reach the 1M+ residents in our area who need them most. We recycle 1.6 million meals each week by redirecting excess fresh, shelf-stable and prepared food away from landfills, reducing food waste and feeding our community.
