Purpose/Mission Statement: The Hunger at Home Work Team is comprised of service providers from Pinellas County and the Greater Tampa Bay area that work to address hunger at home. Members from charities, non-profits, public and private sectors and the community are welcome to join and help us solve hunger in the home.
Goal(s): To end hunger at home by developing programs and strengthening existing initiatives. Specific goals: recruit volunteers; develop pilot for kids.
Activities: In 2019, TBNEH launched MOWSP pilot program, to serve seniors and 18+ homebound individuals (due to illness, injury or disability) with a hot meal delivered to their home, by a volunteer, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This program was developed and launched in partnership with Meals On Wheels of Tampa and Daystar Life Center.
