Thousands in our community face food insecurity

food in·se·cu·ri·ty
the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.

Trinity Cafe seems to be associated with our homeless and those searching for employment, but those who are food insecure have quickly become a segment of the population who find themselves at our door – often running out of money before the end of the month to feed themselves and their families. Women, children, the elderly, and physically and mentally challenged comprise many of the multitudes we serve. Their stomachs are empty, and they are eager to receive a nourishing meal – for many the only food they will eat all day.

One in six people in our region don’t know where their next meal will come from, one in four are children.

Nutrition is critical to the well-being of everyone in our community. Each day, Trinity Cafe addresses the nutritional needs of Tampa’s hungry and serving a well-balanced, restaurant quality meal. It is served with compassion, unconditional respect and dignity.
