COVID increased the number of food insecure in Tampa Florida significantly. Over 11 thousand families are receiving supplies each week at mega pantries. 68% of those families are new to food relief. How is our Blessed Edmund Rice school responding? With much compassion and action! Tampa Catholic High School has supported 7 different local nonprofits this year that dedicate their time and efforts to feeding the hungry.
Our students have served and will continue to serve our homeless community, church food pantries, as well as local soup kitchens. We have organized supplies, worked in warehouses, made a couple thousand sandwiches, and loaded families' trunks all in solidarity with the poor and vulnerable of Tampa Bay.
