Where do food and cash donations go?
Over 90% of contributions go directly for food or maintaining our pantry. (For example, FEAST's power bill runs almost $1300 a month due to freezers and air conditioning.)
Who are our clients?
Over 65% of clients are senior citizens who are trying to live on fixed incomes. Some are grandparents raising grandkids. Some are disabled or out of work due to disease or injury. Some are temporarily out of work or work low income jobs. Some are trying to work and go to school to better themselves.
Who donates and volunteers?
Over 35 regular volunteers support 1 full time and 1 part time employee. Individuals, schools, churches, mobile home parks, residents, civic organizations and local businesses donate time and funds as well as conducting food drives to help survive the "leaner" months.
How long has FEAST been in the area and how did it start?
FEAST has served the area for over 30 years, beginning at the Palm Harbor United Methodist Church and has grown to fit the area's needs over the years, including Palm Harbor, Oldsmar, Ozona, Crystal Beach, Dunedin, Safety Harbor and the 33761 zip code .
