Hunger-free (adj.) –
a community in which any individual or family can thrive through access to healthy food and/or the development of financial self-sufficiency.
There's enough food. But, not enough
space to provide access for all.
Every day, families in our region go hungry while thousands of pounds of food are turned away or lost because of the limitations of our facility.
There is more than enough food available to end hunger, but we lack the space to ensure this access for all.
Our new facility will increase our capacity to deliver 2x more fresh produce and perishable goods, and reduce the cost per meal by up to 25%.
The current space limits the expansion of programs and collaboration that will enable self-sufficiency.
We are closer than ever to a hunger-free Tampa Bay.
When we end hunger by providing access to food, we create the psychological space for these families to focus on improving their economic condition. Yet, this is a problem that has a very straight-forward, cost-effective solution.

a Hub of Opportunity
A purpose-built facility will increase capacity to close the meal gap and connect people to the resources that enable self-sufficiency. This hub of opportunity will be a place where possibility comes to life, where our volunteers are engaged and empowered, where families can shop in a neighborhood grocery store and where dignity is served daily.
