What is St. Petersburg Free Clinic Food Bank?
Established in 1980 as the second food bank in Florida, Free Clinic Food Bank solicits food products from all segments of the food industry, as well as from groups and organizations through food drives and individual donations. These donations allow the Food Bank to help feed around 40,000 individuals per month. The Food Bank distributes food free of charge to over sixty partner agencies throughout our community, including food pantries, shelters, community kitchens, missions, residential programs and child care centers. These include Free Clinic’s We Help Services, Women’s Residence, Family Residence, Beacon House and the Community Kitchen.
Our Food Bank collected and distributed over 2.5 million pounds of food last year. Every month, over 40,000 of our neighbors in need receive food assistance through these efforts.
