Food for Children & Families

JWB and our partners have a variety of ways to help nourish children and put food on the table for families. Now more than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic, it takes all of us working collectively to identify gaps, connect resources, and fill tummies so no child goes hungry!


Food pantries play a vital role in helping families put food on their tables. Due to COVID-19, some may change schedules or close without warning. Please call before visiting to ensure they are open.

Find A Pantry


BreakSpot Grab & Go Meals for Kids have sites open M-F to serve Pinellas County children. Each child will receive a free meal for today and breakfast for tomorrow.

Sites & Hours


With school closures, JWB is funding an innovative pilot with Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger and others to deliver meals to families when barriers exist.

Food Banks Need Your Support

Pinellas County food banks distribute free emergency food to hundreds of food pantries, shelters, and more, and feed thousands every day. But the COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented food shortage, crippling their ability to meet the sky-rocketing need to feed children and families. JWB is making significant investments to our four Pinellas food banks, so families are able to put food on their tables. Please join us by giving to your local food bank today!
