In partnership with Feeding Tampa Bay, Village Hope, St. Pete’s Clinic and other partners plus the support of community food drives and individual donations, we’re able to provide fresh produce, meat and canned goods to over 300,000 people annually. If you’re in need of food for you or your family, we’re here to help.
Here’s how to find free groceries or a hot meal near you.
Our pantry, located in our Community Outreach Center, provides food for people facing hunger and food insecurities. We offer non-perishable items, as well as meats, bakery items, and fresh produce. Visit the pantry once a week to receive healthy food and groceries for yourself and your family. We’re open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. by appointments only. On Tuesday and Thursday individuals without an appointment will receive an emergency bag and will be able to make an appointment for a box of food the following week.
Dozens of volunteers prepare and serve 3,500 nutritious meals each month to hungry neighbors. Meals are served six days a week from 11am to noon at our Hope Center with the exception of Thursday. Sunday meals are served from 1pm to 2pm.
St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Tarpon Springs provides two meals, lunch and dinner, on Thursdays.
