A Letter from Feeding Tampa Bay Executive Director and Board Chair It’s been another year of significant growth for Feeding Tampa Bay, and our progress has resulted in serving our community in more ways – a standard we continually strive for.

Feeding Tampa Bay is the largest food rescuer in West Central Florida

In the United States, 72 billion pounds of food are wasted every year. Perfectly edible food is disposed of while others struggle to put food on their tables. To combat food waste, the Feeding America network of food banks collects excess food from manufacturers, rescues products nearing use-by dates from retail stores, and gathers imperfect fruits and vegetables from local farmers. As part of this network, Feeding Tampa Bay is the largest food rescuer in West Central Florida, keeping more than 62 million pounds of good food out of landfills and placing it on the tables of those in need of a meal.

Meet Terri “Most people tend to focus on what they don’t have, while there are endless opportunities waiting for us just around the corner.” – wise words from our friend, Terri. This Philadelphia native believes that tapping into community resources and programs can offer the ability to regain footing in your life after suffering a serious setback. After the tragic loss of both of her parents, Terri moved to Florida to reinvent her life and find a new “normal.” Her curious mind and nurturing nature have set her up for a new path. With a Bachelors degree in Psychology and a Masters in Theological Seminary under her belt, Terri has decided to pursue her Doctorate in Ministry. Her knowledge, combined with her passion and life experience, has prepared Terri for her new career path – a life coach for individuals facing difficult times. Terri began visiting the Woodland Church Pantry in Bradenton, FL as a means to an end, but now volunteers in hopes of spreading more warmth and generosity into the community.

Three years after receiving food assistance, Henry became a regular volunteer at his pantry. On the days he felt the most defeated, he found hope in this place that was previously unfamiliar. He learned to ask for help and discovered that his battles were normal and experienced by everyday people, every day. He remained loyal to his faith and never forgot the kindness demonstrated to him by the members at his food pantry. His efforts to alter his life course caught the attention of pantry director, Pastor Clayton. Nearly one year ago, Henry was entrusted to lead this pantry in a new direction and showcase prosperity, stewardship, and gratitude. Today he pursues this work to provide his neighbors with the same warmth and love he received many years ago when he first visited the pantry. “It’s never too late to challenge old habits and take charge of your life.”

Eric Piburn - This 7-year-old hunger hero saw the destruction caused by Hurricane Irma and wanted to take action. A fan of peanut butter, he put together a peanut butter drive with the help of his friends at the Cheesecake Factory so those in need of a meal could have protein to eat. Eric raised over a pallet of peanut butter for our hungry neighbors – that’s 1,700 jars! Heroes at any age can take an idea and grow it into real change.

AMA Marketer of the Year Award In 2017, Feeding Tampa Bay launched our first awareness campaign called Don’t Label Hunger in collaboration with our partners at ChappellRoberts. Don’t Label Hunger aimed to dispel the stereotypes surrounding food insecurity in Tampa Bay. This campaign delved into the lives of the individuals we serve, stripping the labels society had created for them and revealing the truth of hunger.

Up 70%

The campaign gained significant traction in the media and was awarded various local and national honors for its content and creativity, including the American Marketing Association Marketer of the Year Award. We are proud to share the success of this campaign in drawing awareness to the stigmas surrounding hunger and in gaining recognition for its unique and creative flair.

Bolts Blue Flame Cookbook The Bolts Blue Flame cookbook allows fans to eat like their favorite hockey players and make a dent in the fight against hunger. Created in conjunction with the Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Blue, the cookbook provides fans with delicious recipes and insights into the hockey player’s eating habits, favorite foods, and family traditions. Good food and healthy recipes nourish our bodies and bring a sense of comfort to our homes – an opportunity food insecure families can experience too from each cookbook sale.

Food For Families As awareness of food insecurity increases across Tampa Bay, so does community support. This past summer, ABC Action News and Seacoast Bank teamed together to host the first Food for Families food drive. During the summer months, family budgets that are already stretched thin are stressed even further while school is out. When school closes for the summer season, child care expenses increase and food budgets are divided more than usual since children no longer receive free meals on campus. Throughout the food drive, ABC and Seacoast team members educated the public on the causes of food insecurity and rallied the community to donate nonperishable goods to their various collection sites. This month-long push brought in 35,181 meals for hungry families in Tampa Bay, alleviating some of the burden experienced this time of year.

On the surface, Epic Chef seems like a regular cooking competition, but its underlying aim is to draw attention to the important role food plays in our lives. This 7-week cooking competition pits some of the Bay area’s top chefs head to head to create tasteful concoctions in 30 minutes or less. Mystery ingredients are revealed at the beginning of each round, adding to the stress of the timed, live performance taking place in the Epicurean Theatre. At the end of each round, the judges taste the dishes the chefs have prepared and select a winner. Many come to compete, but only one can make it to the top. T

During Epic Chef 2017, Chef Colin Reinsmith from Noble Crust fought his way through three rounds of steep competition to become Tampa Bay’s Epic Chef. With the help of Chef Colin and the other competing chefs, a new audience gained insight into the struggles of hunger in our community. As awareness spread, conversations started, and new supporters were inspired to act.

Fork Fight was a night of exquisite dining, fine wine, and craft beer from some of Tampa Bay’s best restaurants and breweries. On May 3rd, food lovers and food bank supporters united to enjoy the food and fun along with some premier silent and live auction packages. Guests also learned that a meal holds more meaning than just food on a plate. In one night, our community raised 3 million meals for our neighbors in need – that’s 3 million steps toward health, and 3 million more moments shared around a table.

Christine Campbell, Van Buren Middle School Social Worker, shares the negative impacts of hunger on her students.

3 million meals... 3 million steps toward health

No event changes perceptions and shifts perspectives like the Hunger Dinner. This past February, guests were invited to Feeding Tampa Bay’s warehouse to enjoy a meal together, but it wasn’t a usual dining experience. Guests were challenged with a food insecure experience - being given a small budget to decide what they could eat that evening. Throughout the night, guests learn about the circumstances surrounding food insecurity, the tough choices those in poverty often have to make, and the programs in place to help alleviate this issue. This unique experience leaves a long-lasting impression and takes the conversation of food insecurity to a new level.

Mobile Pantry Program A majority of the food insecure population O N E

Feeding Tampa Bay serves have jobs and are trying to make ends meet. With time already being a barrier for these individuals who are working, it has become more critical for Feeding Tampa Bay to make food resources convenient for those we serve. The Mobile Pantry Program brings nutritious foods into neighborhoods where access to these foods is low -- food deserts. Last year, to address this need and in response to an increased need from Hurricane Irma, Feeding Tampa Bay significantly increased the frequency of mobile pantries across our service territory. Another upgrade to this program we made was timing. We started offering mobile pantries at night and on the weekends to accommodate the hard-working families who cannot access food during the day while they are at work. Over the course of the year, Feeding Tampa Bay executed 194 mobile pantries that distributed 1.6 million pounds of food and impacted 127,331 people (49,156 of whom were children). S H O

Feeding Minds School Pantry

Opened 8 school food pantries

Every day 1 in 4 children go hungry in Tampa Bay. In Hillsborough County alone, 63% of students receive free or reduced cost school lunches, and typically do not eat when school is not in session. Child hunger doesn’t just affect these young individuals, it affects our entire community. Without access to healthy, nutritious foods, children struggle behaviorally and academically.

Public Schools to create a program called Feeding Minds.

To start, the program opened 8 school food pantries over a 2-week period in areas at high-risk for food insecurity. These pantries will serve as a way for students to get food throughout the day when needed, and to take home over the weekends or on school breaks when food is scarce.

To combat this, Feeding Tampa Bay partnered with Publix Super Markets Charities and Hillsborough County

When students don’t receive the nourishment they need, it is difficult for them to learn, perform, and thrive. Feeding Minds aims to serve these children where they are so they can meet their basic need for food. Feeding Minds will nourish our communities and fuel our youth to lead our future.

Recognizing this, our partners at Florida Blue have taken action to help us provide this most basic need to the hungry neighbors in our community. This past June, Florida Blue donated 2 refrigerated trucks to Feeding Tampa Bay in order to increase the amount of fresh produce distributed to food insecure families in our area. These trucks not only bring sustenance to individuals unsure of where they will find their next meal, but also provide foods high in nutritional content to those lacking essential vitamins and minerals.

Disaster Relief Efforts

Feeding Tampa Bay plays a vital role in responding to natural disasters – such as floods, tornadoes and hurricanes – throughout the state. As an affiliate of Feeding America and Feeding Florida, Feeding Tampa Bay accumulates and directs resources to other food banks in our network when national or local disasters take place. The destruction left by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria called the disaster relief plans into action. Responses to Hurricane Harvey were in place just as Hurricane Irma swept through the state of Florida. While some counties were spared, others faced destruction that would linger with long-term effects. Though hurricane season ended, the effects Hurricane Irma continued into the new year. To account for the influx of food insecure individuals brought upon by unforeseen circumstances, Feeding Tampa Bay continues to hold disaster plans in place.

In three months following Irma, Feeding Tampa Bay: Á Supplied

100 tractor trailer loads of MRE’s, water, and fruit

Á Secured

additional warehouse space, trucks, equipment, and staff to aid in recovery Á Funded

hurricane repairs for 25 food pantry partners Á Held

over 80 mobile pantry distributions across 10 counties Á Distributed

9,339,729 meals

Polk County Transition At the beginning of 2018, Agape Food Bank, the organization contracted to manage food relief in Polk County on Feeding Tampa Bay’s behalf, shifted its mission and closed their food bank doors. As part of Feeding Tampa Bay’s service area, we stepped in to assume full responsibility of direct food relief operations in the county. Through this transition, we saw an opportunity to help build capacity of agency partners in Polk County and secured a grant from Walmart to purchase refrigerators, pallet jacks and pallet scales. These assets were transferred directly to some of our agency partners to enable the acquisition and distribution or fresh, healthy foods to Polk County residents in need.
