Weekly Food Distribution:
Every Thursday from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. we hand out boxes of food to members of the community. Anyone who qualifies for government subsidies is welcome to come for assistance. Our Food Bank is located beside Presbyterian Church of Bloomingdale at 710 E. Bloomingdale Ave., Brandon, FL.
(Beside Dunkin’ Donuts and across the street from Walmart).
Backpacks of Hope:
Our backpack of food program is designed to help provide weekend food to school children who qualify for free school lunch. When starting our backpack program, we worked closely with school personnel. Our backpacks are unique in that we target hunger relief for the whole family – we know that “hungry kids go home to hungry families.”
Our backpacks include items that will sustain a family for the weekend: a jar of peanut butter and jelly, a box of cereal, boxes of mac & cheese, a box of pasta.
Mobile Food Pantry:
We understand there may be circumstances that limit someone from attending our weekly food distribution. We work with our clients to meet their food needs. The mobile pantry, aimed at Lithia residents, works with clients on an individual basis. It’s a one on one distribution that is discreet and confidential. Email us for more information.
