We recognize that over the past year, many families in our community have been impacted by layoffs, reductions in work hours, or changes to your income. There are food pantries and support systems in place to help at an unprecedented time like this. It is ok to need help.
If you are in need of food, visit a food bank location on the set day and time to pick up a pre-packaged box or bag of groceries, free of charge. They do not require ID, papers, or pre-screening to obtain free food at a Mobile Pantry.
Please note, due to rapidly changing circumstances during this time, mobile pantries can be canceled without much notice. Links are provided to check directly with the source, we are not typically notified about any schedule changes.
Volunteers are needed to help distribute food at each of these locations. Visit the Feeding Tampa Bay website to sign up for the Mega Pantry at Lakes Church in Lakeland each week. Visit the United Way website to learn more about volunteer opportunities at other food distribution sites.
