BCC to host free Fresh Food Giveaway on Dec. 16

As part of a countywide effort to meet the growing need for food assistance, the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners (BCC) is working with community partners to host a free fresh food distribution event on Friday, Dec.16, at 9 a.m. at the Sunderman Complex, 1631 9th Street, Palm Harbor. Distribution will be drive-thru only and will run until 11 a.m., or for as long as supplies last.

The County’s partnership with St. Pete Free Clinic (SPFC) is part of a continuous effort to ensure public well-being by distributing healthy foods to citizens most in need. Anyone in need of assistance with grocery necessities is welcome to attend.

With food insecurity on the rise in our community, the BCC is working with community partners to ensure that all areas of the county have access to quality food. For example, SPFC offers expanded locations, hours, and drive-through options with additional mobile pantries in underserved areas in mid and north Pinellas County. With compassion and respect, SPFC changes lives by providing health care, nutritious food, recovery housing, and education for our neighbors in need.
