Meetings and Minutes

We invite you to join us at our next Member Meeting!

Our monthly meetings are a platform for community engagement. We often host speakers and presentations from community partners, as well as give updates on TBNEH specific projects and events. These gatherings are a great resource and support for our partner organizations/agencies/businesses to come together and build capacity while finding solutions to community issues and initiatives surrounding hunger.

Meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of the month from 9:30am – 11:00am at United Way Suncoast (5201 W Kennedy Blvd #600, Tampa, FL 33609) in Tampa.

Pleace arrive early as parking may be limited. Please park in designated visitor spots.
