Retail and Large Donations

Together we can end hunger.

About 1 million residents across Tampa Bay struggle to find their next meal on a daily basis. Working together with retailers, manufacturers, farmers, and distributors keeps food waste at a minimum and places meals on tables where they are needed most. Feeding Tampa Bay currently recycles 1.6 million meals each week – redistributing excess fresh or shelf-stable food to our neighbors in need instead of retiring it to a landfill.
