The Family Faith Fest is an unprecedented free music and faith festival that will provide a day of fun, fellowship and exciting activities for people of all ages. It will also seek to fill an important need in our community—food for the hungry. Everyone who attends the Family Faith Fest is asked to bring a non-perishable food item to benefit charities that serve the most vulnerable among us.
Canned vegetables, fruits and soup, boxed & bagged [dried] pasta and rice and peanut butter and jelly.
Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Petersburg will deliver all the donations to four of their centers that serve the hungry.
Nearly 500,000 of our neighbors are food insecure; that’s 1 in 7 people in the Tampa Bay area living in hunger at some point throughout the year
Child food insecurity in our five county region ranges between 20% and 26%.
“The Family Faith Fest is an amazing free event –a gift to our community on our golden anniversary. This food drive will also be a gift to those who struggle with hunger every day,” said Teresa Peterson, executive director of communications, Diocese of St. Petersburg.
