We’re just blown about the members of this community. In response to Pinellas County School closures and the Safer at Home order, leaders across the Tampa Bay region have organized a convoy of food trucks and partnered with local restaurants to serve meals to neighbors in need, and help to keep food trucks and restaurant owners/staff working.
It’s a beautiful movement that benefits everyone involved.
It took organizers just 10 days to go from an idea to rolling their first convoy of 2 trucks out last Wednesday and Friday with 400 meals for our neighbors.
This week the Food Convoy has served 400 meals per day to neighbors in need with daily with convoys of 3 food trucks.
You can help with a donation to The St. Petersburg Foundation that will be marched by Feeding Tampa Bay.
This effort to help neighbors who are transportation disadvantaged and missing meals they depend on from school is possible because of the contributions of the following:
