WELCOME TO OUR DAILY BREAD TAMPA BAY

We focus on providing food and compassionate services to as many hungry and homeless people
as we can , in all the places that we can and at all the times we possibly can.

FAMILIES

You may be surprised to learn that more than 50,000 people in Hillsborough County live in households of extreme poverty and chronic hunger. The sad reality is that many of our neighbors must choose between paying for food and other necessities such as shelter or medical care. As a result, nutritious meals are often sacrificed.

CHILDREN

In the United States, more than one out of six children lives in a household with food insecurity, which means they do not always know where they will find their next meal. According to the USDA , 16.2 million children under 18 in the United States live in this condition – unable to consistently access nutritious and adequate amounts of food necessary for a healthy life.

VETERANS

Every day nearly 1,000 Soldiers, Sailors and Marines become new U.S. Veterans.
On any given night, more than 300,000 Veterans are living on the streets or in shelters in the U.S. Approximately 33% of homeless males in the U.S. are Veterans. We believe it is our duty to give back to our nation’s military Veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country.

OUR MISSION

Our Daily Bread Tampa Bay is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 tax exempt organization with a mission to permanently eliminate hunger and homelessness in the Tampa Bay.

We believe in the possibility of permanent change in our community and in the lives of each person we help. Our main avenue to assist is by providing food and other vital services through a variety of direct and indirect programs to homeless Veterans and families with children in the Tampa Bay, Florida area.

In collaboration with existing non-profit foundations and other social and faith-based organizations, our team of board members and volunteers strives to provide food and compassionate services to as many hungry and homeless people as we can, in all the places we can, in all the ways that we can and at all the times we possibly can.
