Serving poor and homeless families
in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco and Polk


A meal for you. A meal for them.
When you eat a meal from Inside the Box you are also helping feed someone who would have otherwise gone without. 100% of all proceeds from your meal will provide a meal for a person in need through Metropolitan Ministries. Prices are set in such a way that your meal pays for a hot, nutritious meal served at our family shelter or through our Partner Meal Sites. The program has already provided for 1000 additional meals. Furthermore, Inside The Box trains homeless mothers and fathers in the culinary arts so they can get out of homelessness and back to self sufficiency. Inside the Box provides out of the box thinking on solving hunger in Tampa Bay.
