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. In fact, there is more than enough food available to end hunger in our region — if we can get the food to the families who need it.

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.

the Capacity to End Hunger

Feeding Tampa Bay has launched a bold $39 million campaign to build the facility that will fuel a hunger-free community. Through this facility, we will have the capacity to meet the entirety of demand for food in our 10-county region.
