Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger (TBNEH), a tri-county leader in hunger relief, research, and program development, is in great need of volunteers to help pack and deliver Meals On Wheels for Kids (MOW4Kids) in Tampa each week. Packing boxes of food takes place at Community Stepping Stones (CSS) (1101 E River Cove St) and TC Delivers (7002 Parke E Blvd) in Tampa on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. Deliveries occur on Mondays and Wednesdays out of CSS and Mort Elementary School (1806 E Bearss Ave East). Background checked volunteers drive their own vehicles to deliver shelf stable boxes of food and cold meal packs to children and families. Delivery begins at 10AM and routes take about 60 minutes to complete.
Sign up to volunteer now by visiting www.networktoendhunger.org/volunteer.
The Network’s innovative MOW4Kids program, the first program of its kind, launched last March in response to COVID-19 school closures. MOW4Kids is an alternative option for kids that are not able to access meal distribution sites throughout the county; and/or kids that have difficulty accessing food pantries. The program relies on over 125 volunteers to help deliver lunchtime meals to children who are learning remotely and are at risk of going hungry.
To receive free meals delivered to your home, visit https://networktoendhunger.org/mow4kidstampabay/ or call (813) 344-5837.
The Network is currently accepting donations at www.networktoendhunger.org to help support the MOW4Kids program. A donation of just $20 will provide a week of Meals On Wheels for Kids deliveries to children in need. For additional information, please call the Network at (813) 344-5837.
