A huge thank you to those who participated in our efforts to feed health care workers, first responders, and volunteers in the Sun City Center area. Over 270 pizzas have now been delivered to feed approximately 1,000 med techs, CNAs, LPNs, RNs, caregivers, dietary workers, housekeepers etc. who are on the front lines protecting Sun City Center residents and patients.

With estimates of over 30% unemployment, our food banks have been hit hard and we will be partnering with Inspired Living of Sun City Center to help replenish Feeding Tampa Bay’s inventory.

If you are interested in helping, on April 23, residents can drive in and drop of non-perishable items under the Kings Point North Clubhouse Portico from 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. The drop off will be contactless and Inspired Living will pick up the items from the Portico to drop off that evening.

Non-perishable food items suggested include: canned meat, tuna, salmon, peanut butter, jelly, canned or dry soup, canned stews, tea bags, ground coffee, canned pasta or vegetables.
