Unfortunately, not all families and not all children look at summer as a time of blessing and overflowing food. Many families in our community struggle even more than usual in the summertime to put enough food on the table for their children. Many families rely on the public school system to feed their children breakfast and lunch each day. When school ends, it means that the food runs out faster in their house. They do not have enough money to pay for the rent, the electricity, and put food on the table for 3 meals a day for their children. Where do they turn? Many families in need turn to Metropolitan Ministries for help.
How would you feel if you were a single mom trying to raise your three kids and all you had to feed them in the refrigerator was a pitcher of water and a jar of peanut butter?
This is where we can help! Food donations are low right now at Metropolitan Ministries. There are especially a low number of food items right now in the Tampa Gluten Free Food Pantry. If you can help, please bring Gluten Free Non-Perishable Foods to:
