Empowering you to have a brighter, healthier future.

Feeding Tampa Bay’s FRESHforce program provides workforce development and on-the-job training to individuals with barriers to employment. FRESHforce offers courses across 3 different industries: culinary, warehouse logistics, and truck driving. Across all tracks, students earn a stipend, learn soft skills, gain customer service, interview, and resume writing experience, and obtain industry-standard certifications to enhance job prospects. By creating a coalition of nonprofits, businesses, and government departments, FRESHforce addresses food insecurity by empowering individuals with the skills needed to gain financial stability.
