Gas or groceries? What would you do if you had to choose? Seriously. It’s not an easy choice. 1 out of every 5 people living in Florida has to make a choice like this every day. The circumstances differ, but the end result is the same for families struggling to make it to their next paycheck or for seniors living on a fixed income. Nutritious food is hard to come by when your budget is limited.

Poor nutrition makes it difficult for children to concentrate in school. They get sick more often too. You just can’t ignore hunger. That’s why at Metropolitan Ministries, we receive more requests for food than any other service. Anyone who is hungry can be fed here.

How You Can Provide Food

We serve 75,000 meals each month in Tampa Bay and at partner sites around Hillsborough, Pasco, Polk and Pinellas counties. And, during Thanksgiving and Christmas, Metropolitan Ministries serves 18,000 families in need with holiday meals. There are so many ways you can help!

Where We Serve Food

We are growing to meet the most urgent needs of the Tampa area’s families in need. Our main Outreach Center is in downtown Tampa, but we have an additional Outreach Center in Pasco County.

We have partnered with a number of organizations to provide hot, balanced and nutritious meals.  Our partner sites serve as many as 2,000 meals per day.
