Food 4 Kids

The Junior League of Tampa Food 4 Kids project

We believe no one should go hungry.

Food insecurity affects more than 1.3 million people in the Tampa Bay region. Families struggling with food insecurity do not have consistent access to enough food for a healthy life*. For children, hunger and food insecurity can lead to problems with development, learning, and more.

The Junior League of Tampa’s Food 4 Kids project aims to help close the hunger gap and help children access the food they need. What began in the early 2000s as a food backpack program at a few Title I Schools, now serves families across Hillsborough County.

Boxes of Hope

The Food 4 Kids project partners with Metropolitan Ministries to supply Boxes of Hope to families in need. Inside each box are perishable like fruits and vegetables as well as shelf stable items like soup, peanut butter, cereal, and rice.
