Very soon humanity will have a new address, but our mission remains unchanged: to restore a sense of dignity to the hungry and homeless while serving a nutritious meal. Trinity Cafe served 99,222 meals with dignity in 2015; however, the need in our community is still great. Of the 200,000 people struggling with hunger and food insecurity in Tampa, 1 in 4 are children. We believe that no child, woman or man in need should be without access to a daily, nutritious meal served with dignity.
Trinity Cafe will open its second location this spring. Through a partnership with the First Church of God, Trinity Cafe 2 will now serve guests in North Tampa. This location was selected due to the 3 million meals that are missing in the area, according to the Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger.
Trinity Cafe 2 will operate alongside the original location in the same traditional way: hand-delivered meals will be served with respect, kindness and compassion to guests seated at china-set tables. The encouraging and supportive culture found at the original Trinity Cafe on Nebraska Ave and our commitment to restore a sense of dignity to the homeless and hungry will be extended to our second location. The food will be prepared at the North Nebraska Avenue site and transported to the new café. Trinity Cafe 2 anticipates serving between 200 and 300 guests daily and will operate weekdays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. beginning March 24th.
