Many families in Pinellas County live with the fear that they won’t have enough food on the table to feed their children. You can help collect food for hungry families in our community through St. Petersburg Free Clinic’s Feed the Need Challenge during the month of September.

You can participate by hosting a two-week food drive with your coworkers, friends or family. We’ll drop off collection barrels and leave you with promotional flyers and a list of most-needed items. Then, we’ll pick up the barrels and donated food once your food drive is complete.

All non-perishable food donations will be weighed, and the team with highest weight of donations will be named the 2019 Hunger Hero during our Hunger Free luncheon on September 27.

Contact Julie Bostick at to sign up for the challenge.
