Disaster Relief

Feeding Tampa Bay and our Disaster Readiness team are FEMA trained and prepared to handle disaster situations. In partnership with the Tampa Bay area Emergency Operations Centers, we work directly with local emergency management operations to provide food, water, and hygiene items to our service area, state, and neighboring states during crisis situations. See below for tips on how to prepare and how to help following a storm.

Stock up on these items

Although weather patterns are ever-changing, it is important to be prepared for any impact of hurricanes threatening Florida. Stock up on shelf-stable food and water to weather any storm.

Food safety tips

As Floridians, hurricane prep is a yearly task. Get your family disaster ready by collecting shelf-stable and ready-to-eat foods, tracking how to safely store food during a power outage, and preparing to-dos for once a storm has passed.
