Because food makes
tomorrow possible.

In the wake of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), its important that we step up to help those in need of food. Many of our families struggle to provide everyday meals, and with extended school breaks and business closures, this need is increasing to levels we’ve never seen before. Help us bring food to neighbors in need during this time of uncertainty.


Every donation you make helps bring more food to the tables of the hundreds of thousands of hungry families, kids and seniors in the Tampa Bay region. Through our local and national partnerships, Feeding Tampa Bay can multiply every dollar donated and maximize the number of meals given to our neighbors. Make a one-time donation or a recurring monthly donation through our secure portal below to show your support in the fight against hunger, or donate through PayPal.

Traditional Food Drive

We’ll provide all the tools to help you increase food supplies for our community’s hungry. Click the button below for tips, ideas and the necessary forms and materials to run a successful, stress-free event.

Virtual Food Drive

For those lacking the necessary storage, equipment or onsite employees for a traditional food drive, a virtual food drive makes helping easy. Your monetary donations will enable us to get more meals to the hungry with less expense. Participants use major credit cards to make payments on a secure site using point-and-click technology similar to online shopping.

Create a legacy.

Consider the values that you hold dear. Do you believe that no child should go to school on an empty stomach? Do you believe that no senior should have to skip meals to pay for medication? Planned giving can reflect these values, leaving a legacy that endures and helps individuals, your community and the world.
