The Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger (TBNEH) is in need of volunteers to sign up to deliver “Holidays on Wheels,” a Meals on Wheels for Kids program.
This program was developed in partnership with Metropolitan Ministries, to ensure every child and family has a meal for Thanksgiving.
In Tampa Bay, more than half of those who are hungry are children, and TBNEH is asking community members to be a part of the solution to help solve hunger this holiday season, according to a TBNEH news release.
At least 300 volunteers are still needed to help deliver more than 1,000 Thanksgiving meals (including turkey and stuffing) to families that are homebound or do not have access to transportation.
Deliveries will take place starting at 10 a.m., on Nov. 17. Volunteers can pick up route sheets and special delivery items from assigned pick-up sites closest to their home or work address, and will use their own vehicles to make the deliveries.
Once the volunteer’s car is loaded, the route will take about one hour to complete.
The mission of TBNEH is to end hunger in Tampa Bay by bringing people together to find solutions that eliminate barriers, increase access and knowledge, and expand the amount of nutritious food available.
For those interested in helping to deliver Thanksgiving meals, sign-up is online at NetworkToEndHunger.org/volunteer.
The network also is accepting donations at NetworkToEndHunger.org/holidays, to help support the Holidays on Wheels program.
For information, call (813) 344-5837.
