Feeding Tampa Bay has been around since 1981, but it wasn’t until three years ago that the nonprofit vowed to end hunger + food insecurity in the region altogether.
Through the pandemic, the nonprofit managed to supply free healthy groceries for people with medical issues, build more food pantries in the community’s neediest schools, and provide financial resources to those in need.
And now they’re looking to expand their space to help meet those goals.
New plans for an enormous warehouse would enable the group to extend its reach of help to more people who can’t afford to eat. The facility would help FTB to double its capacity for nonperishables and fresh foods.
Plans for the new warehouse include the following:
- A job training center
- A health clinic
- A grocery store
- A center for assistance with housing and benefits.
