FOOD & NUTRITION
We are a low-barrier food source for homeless and at-risk individuals and families
in the Zephyrhills area. Our volunteers our proud to provide good, quality
nutrition for those in need - consistently rotating stock and checking dates to
ensure that only the best, fresh options are available to our clients.
We kindly ask that donors do not drop off out-of-date foods, as we unanimously
agree that we will not share anything with our clients that we would not eat
ourselves or feed to our own families.
SOLUTIONS FOR THE HOMELESS
Thanks to the generosity of local businesses, fresh foods are available in our
office during business hours to any individual who is currently experiencing
homelessness and hungry. Options may include hot or cold sandwiches, wraps,
salads, fruit cups, baked goods, and microwaveable meals. Cold bottled water is
readily available to anyone who is thirsty, thanks to our friends at Nestle Waters.
For those who have no way to heat or cook food, our microwave may be used any time our office is open. Homeless visitors may also request a "to-go" bag, a sturdy, reusable bag packed with ready-to-eat meals, MRE's, nutritious snacks, and drinks.
There is no limit to the number of times our homeless guests may request food assistance.
SOLUTIONS FOR AT-RISK HOUSEHOLDS
Our food pantry provides emergency food assistance to low-income households that are at risk of homelessness. Offerings may include non-perishables, frozen meats, and produce. The amount provided is based on the number of individuals in the household and the volume of donations that we currently have in stock.
At-risk households may request food assistance up to once per month.
