Feeding America Tampa Bay – Thanksgiving Food Drive at the Law Office of The Law Offices of Charles D. Scott in St. Petersburg
The Law Offices of Charles D. Scott is proudly partnering with Feeding America Tampa Bay to host a Thanksgiving Food Drive!
How is the food used: Feeding America Tampa Bay is partnered with over 600 charities and churches that distribute this food to the hungry in West Central Florida through their pantry and soup kitchen programs. Through this network of partner agencies, the food bank dispenses the equivalent of over 250,000 meals for the hungry each week. Since it began in 1982, the food bank has distributed over 150 million pounds of food.
Who are the people they help? The working poor who struggle to get by, the grandparents who find themselves fulfilling the role of parents once again, the disabled no longer able to work, and those simply finding the road back from hard times.
Every 1 percent increase in unemployment in Florida equates to an additional 2.5 million pounds of food needed. The Food Bank distributed almost 17 million pounds of food last year, but it’s an amount that must be doubled in order to fulfill the ever growing need. Please help.
Thank you for your support.
Items needed include: canned meats, canned vegetables, canned or dried beans, cereal, peanut butter, canned fruits, canned and boxed meals, pasta and rice, crackers, dry milk, and other nonperishable food items.
Food Donation Items may be dropped off from November 1 through November 21, 2011 from 9 am to 5 pm at the Law Office of The Law Offices of Charles D. Scott, 4755 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, Florida.
