2017 National Sunshine Summit to End Hunger 

The 2017 National Sunshine Summit to End Hunger is a two-day event co-hosted by the Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger and the Alliance to End Hunger. The summit will provide organizers and the broader anti-hunger community a forum to learn, share, and network while exploring best practices in solving hunger.

During our volunteer event, nearly 1,000 community members and leaders will lineup on the Promenade of the Amalie Arena to convert bulk foods into smaller, family-sized bags to create a balanced meal bag. These bags will be distributed to food pantries around the Tampa Bay Area to give to communities in need. We will need people to help weigh and measure food, seal packages, and box and label the food.

Please click here to register yourself, team or your company for this fantastic volunteer opportunity!
