The Solution to Hunger

Hunger-Free Tampa Bay

Our strategic plan ensures everyone in need has access to healthy, nutritious food, and the resources they need to combat the effects of hunger – bringing about a hunger-free Tampa Bay. Every day, we get closer to ending hunger in our community, but you can take part in the action. Cultivate your role in fulfilling our mission of providing 115 million meals every year, nourishing self-sustainable lives and transforming our community’s wellbeing.

Food for Today

Our community’s needs are ever-changing and Feeding Tampa Bay is implementing new, innovative solutions to bring meals to all those in need. With grocery distributions at bus stations, food pantries on school campuses, and other forward-thinking applications, we ensure anyone in need of immediate access to food or resources can find them.

Food for Tomorrow

Leveraging every interaction around food, Feeding Tampa Bay convenes resources and connects our neighbors to long-term stability. From our SNAP benefit outreach efforts at our Trinity Cafe’s to prescriptions for health food bags at medical clinics, we break barriers in access to healthy food choices like cost, mobility, and transportation.

Food for a Lifetime

Our mission stretches beyond providing food and into self-sustainability. In collaboration with our community partners, our FRESHforce program offers students technical skills and hands-on experience across different industries – breaking the cycle of hunger by acting as a stepping stone into the workforce. This access to financial assistance and employment opportunities can close the income gap and promote long-term stability.

The Causes of Hunger

Hunger affects everyday people, every day. Most people live paycheck to paycheck and financial safety nets are not a guarantee. Losing a job during an economic downturn could mean choosing between feeding your family or paying this month’s rent. Hurricane damage to a home might mean choosing repairs over groceries. The unexpected can drastically alter someone’s circumstances – and Feeding Tampa Bay is here to help.
