Mission Statement

Raise funds and collect food to disburse to the local needy, free of charge, through participating non-profit agencies and organizations with special attention given to the Holiday Season.

Description

In 1987 Sarasota Mayor Fredd Atkins and representatives of various organizations in the county gathered to decide how to effectively feed the hungry and homeless in Sarasota on Thanksgiving and the holiday season. To accomplish this, they established the Mayor’s Feed The Hungry Program. Its original mission was to collect funds and distribute them during the holiday season. Over the years the program has expanded to include food drives, community feedings and providing food gift cards.

The program is now endorsed by the Mayors of Sarasota, Venice, Bradenton, Longboat Key, Palmetto, North Port and the County Commission Chairpersons from Manatee and Sarasota counties. Services are provided to local communities throughout Sarasota and Manatee Counties.

Members in the Mayors’ Feed The Hungry Program are all-volunteers. No government funds have been used to support the program. Membership is open to anyone who is interested to help. Member organizations who regularly participate in meetings and activities are eligible to receive donations to distribute free to the needy in their communities. Please visit the website at www.mayorsfeedthehungry.org for more information.
