Distasio Personal Injury Law Donates to Feeding Tampa Bay Assistance Program
Distasio Law Firm donates to Feeding Tampa Bay, supporting the local nonprofit’s efforts to ensure all families in the area have groceries and food to eat amidst COVID-19. With extended layoffs, school closures, and delayed benefits, the need for organizations to provide food for families is more significant now than at any other time in recent memory.
The donation from Distasio Law Firm and contributions from other local businesses will ensure our neighbors do not have to skip meals or go without during this stressful time. Feeding Tampa Bay plans to continue their additional programs and support for the community as the Tampa Bay area reopens and affected families get back on their feet.
COVID-19 Dramatically Increased Demand for Feeding Tampa Bay’s Programs
Many families have already struggled with everyday meals, relying on free school lunches, SNAP benefits, and other assistance which provide the much-needed boost to make ends meet and keep food on the table. At Feeding Tampa Bay, their fully stocked shelves further support these families–and many others who have become food insecure as a result of job loss or other COVID-19-related economic concerns.
This requires the organization to purchase more food than usual to ensure their programs for children and seniors can continue as usual. Until our community can return to normal, the demand for their programs will likely continue to increase. At Distasio Law Firm, we recognize that Feeding Tampa Bay is often the difference between individuals getting three meals a day or not eating.
In addition to supplying two weekly MEGA distributions of food to more than 5,000 families, Feed Tampa Bay also has programs to:
- Feed children between school meals, feeding 2,600 meals to children every day across four counties.
- Ensure those who cannot leave their homes receive meals, including more than 50,606 senior meals each month across the four-county service area.
- Serve other underserved and food insecure communities.
We encourage you to learn more about Feeding Tampa Bay and their coronavirus response on their website. Consider giving your time or making a donation to help ensure your neighbors have food on the table tonight.
