In the past years, Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger has helped prepare Meals On Wheels St. Petersburg seniors and homebound neighbors and Meals On Wheels for Kids recipients for hurricane season. In 2020, we provided over 5,000 shelf-stable meals and resource guides (including a shelter application) to all 800+ program recipients.
Many of us have a plan for what to do when and if a storm hits. However, for many of the seniors and homebound throughout our community, there is no plan. This population is at a much higher risk of danger during a storm since they cannot leave their homes or gather supplies easily. The hurricane packs are vital and help provide peace of mind in case a normal meal delivery cannot be made due to a storm.
Help ensure seniors and homebound neighbors are provided with hurricane preparedness packs.
