Pinellas County

1 in 4 children on the peninsula is considered food insecure (that means they don’t always know where their next meal is coming from) and a growing number of our senior citizens on low fixed incomes struggle to afford both housing and food. What would you do in this situation?

The generosity of the St. Petersburg community blows us away. Partners in Safe Harbor have been especially generous, stepping up to provide food for people in need, more than we would have imagined was possible because they were willing to think outside of the box.

In addition to taking 1,500 meals a day to the Safe Harbor emergency homeless shelter in Clearwater, we provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for families and low-income seniors struggling to make ends meet.
