This year, CL is excited to be partnering with Feeding Tampa Bay on Restaurant Week and a portion of proceeds will benefit the nonprofit. As one of the nation’s top hunger relief organizations, Feeding Tampa Bay is ending hunger by fueling human potential in every family, child and senior across our 10-county region. By leveraging the daily connection around a meal, the organization is evolving its partnerships, programs, and services with a goal to break down barriers and create long-term health and capability in the lives of the individuals they serve. In response to the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, Feeding Tampa Bay has evolved their services by almost doubling their reach to serve 2 million meals weekly, and anticipates it will serve up to 85 million meals this year. Feeding Tampa Bay, because food makes tomorrow possible.
