Direct Relief

Direct Relief is coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations and businesses in the U.S. and globally to provide personal protective equipment and essential medical items to health workers responding to coronavirus (COVID-19).

In the U.S., Direct Relief is delivering protective masks – along with exam gloves, isolations gowns, and other protective gear to healthcare organizations across the country.

Direct Relief is also staging personal protective equipment with regional response agencies across the world, including in the Caribbean and South America through the Pan American Health Organization.

World Central Kitchen

We are facing an unprecedented emergency, unlike anything this country has experienced. Beyond the health impacts of the COVID-19 coronavirus, our economy has ground to a halt — schools and businesses are closed, travel is restricted, and restaurants face an uncertain future. Traditional safety nets like school feeding programs, childcare services, and senior centers are struggling to stay open.

The reality is stark, but simple: Millions of Americans are out of work and struggling to put food on the table for their families.

But this moment is not without hope. We will get through this, and World Central Kitchen has seen what’s possible as we’ve fought on the front lines in Japan and California deploying systems to deliver meals to quarantined cruise ship passengers. Our Relief Team is now serving nearly 100,000 meals every day across the country, and we need you. Together, #ChefsForAmerica can make sure nobody is left behind.

Feeding America Tampa Bay

Three ways food banks are feeding kids and their families during the pandemic:

  1. Drive-thru food distributions at schools. To feed children and their families while school is out, and to keep everyone safe and maximize “social distancing,” food banks are working with school districts to implement drive-thru food distributions at schools that are closed. In many cases, these distributions include an emergency food box. Some food banks are distributing fresh produce and meat to families as well.
  2. Preparing and distributing to-go meals to kids and families. Many food banks operate BackPack programs that offer food and pre-made meals to kids on weekends. With schools closed, those programs are shifting their model to offer cold meals to-go for kids and their families. Some food banks are also using food trucks to get those meals to kids in need.
  3. Activating summer and after-school sites to serve meals. When school is out for the summer, many children receive free meals at summer food sites in their community. To meet increased need right now, many food banks have worked with their partners to open summer meal sites immediately to feed kids who are missing meals. Food banks are also ensuring that existing after-school meal sites have the support they need and are equipped to handle the demand for more meals.

Each year, Feeding Tampa Bay distributes 50,300,080 meals to people struggling with hunger Counties served by Feeding Tampa Bay: Citrus FL, Hardee FL, Hernando FL, Highlands FL, Hillsborough FL, Manatee FL, Pasco FL, Pinellas FL, Polk FL, Sumter FL
