HOW

FOOD DRIVES

 

How do we plan to contribute? Florida Hunger Project organizes food drives to deliver donations to local food banks. Stay tuned on SOCIAL MEDIA 

and watch for updates on our BULLETIN to find out where our designated food drop locations are and any upcoming Florida Hunger Project

food drive events.

 

Microgreens grown in Urban Container Farms

 

While Florida Hunger Project staff & volunteers work diligently to organize drives to collect food and deliver to local food banks, we also have a team of indoor farmers dedicated to growing, packaging and donating vegetables to local food banks. Learn More about Container Farms

WHY

WHY FOOD DRIVES?

Hosting food drives and collecting food are efficient ways to both, accumulate large volumes of food for food bank donations, and a great way to engage

with the community. Florida Hunger Project takes care of the coordinating, hosting, food collection and donation delivery, creating service opportunities for members of the community to get involved and impact the lives of those who are hungry. Even with a full schedule, we find that when food drop-off is made available and easy to access, there is significant community participation due to the convenient and efficient means to donate. Check our BULLETIN to review our collection points and home pick-up service options (if applicable in your area). If you are unable to attend a food drive event you might find we have a food drop-off / collection point at your local supermarket or somewhere nearby. If you live in our Tampa Bay service area, we can come to you to collect food you want to donate, right from your pantry!

Our headquarters are in St. Petersburg, FL – we started this project as a local initiative, with the intention to branch out far and wide as we grow.

WHY MICROGREENS?

 

 

NUTRIENT PACKED – they contain loads of beneficial vitamins *resource sited below

VERSATILE – eat them alone or dress them up to accompany any meal

KIDS LOVE THEM – enough said 

Why microgreens? They are dense with nutrients – nutritious and delicious. We are busy growing microgreens to continue to offer diversity in what we

donate to food banks. But, they are also a part of the longterm Florida Hunger Project vision. Follow us on SOCIAL MEDIA to watch Florida Hunger Project's vision evolve. Ultimately, we want to feed people who are hungry – for starters, we are facilitating the collection of large volumes of food to support

local food banks; Moving forward, we are driven to extend our reach and expand our platform. We want to offer new and innovative hunger solutions,

educating and empowering communities to approach hunger and health in a new way. This includes sourcing, growing and/or eating nutrient rich foods

like microgreens.

*From a USDA Agricultural Research Service study on microgreens:

“The present study determined the concentrations of essential vitamins or provitamins A, C, E, and K1 in 25 commercially available microgreens. Results showed that different microgreens provide widely varying amounts of the four vitamins, but regardless they generally have significantly higher concentrations of these phytonutrients in comparison with mature leaves from the same plant species. These phytonutrient data provide the first scientific basis for evaluating nutritional benefits of microgreens and, when included in the USDA food composition database, can be used by health agencies and consumers to make educated choices about inclusion of microgreens as part of a healthy diet.”

WHAT

CANNED & DRIED FOODS | OILS & CONDIMENTS | NUTS, FRUITS & VEGETABLES

What food will we collect for local food banks? The Florida Hunger Project aims to maximize our service potential by offering diversity in food donations.

We coordinate food drive events and create food drop-off / collection points for not only food with longer shelf lives (i.e. canned foods, pasta, rice, beans, oils, etc.), but also for fresh fruits and veggies. We will always indicate when a food drive event and/or food collection points are able to accept perishable foods.
