Empty Plate Stories on Give Day Tampa Bay

Posted on April 30, 2018

Give Day Tampa Bay is May 1st—a day where the community comes together to help those in need by supporting their favorite charities. Our goal is BIG. We want to fill 31,000 empty plates with a nutritious meal.

When hungry people come to us for help with food, they often share their stories of hardship with us. We serve 2,600 meals a day, sometimes more. Each plate has a story. We call them Empty Plate Stories.

Go to our Blog Page to learn more about Aaron, Anaya, Dianne Luis and Jamie and their Empty Plate Stories.

You can help by giving on May 1st, or you can give early to help us reach our goal even faster - CLICK HERE TO DONATE.

Thank you for feeding hungry children in Tampa Bay. And because of a MATCH from a generous donor, your gift will provide TWO meals!
