I saw this story on ABC Action News this morning and this warms your heart. It’s not a food kitchen. It’s not a typical grocery store. But if you know someone having a rough go of it, a local pastor has created a unique shopping experience in Tampa. The look and design is to recreate the experience you’d have picking up what you need at Publix, but there are no cash registers. They say they want those who need some help to feel like they’re doing a normal grocery run to maintain their dignity. No questions asked, you walk in, get the groceries you need and walk out.
They open today at 10AM for three hours. “Tampa Bay Harvest” is open 3 days a week… Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10AM-1PM. It’s located behind Fresh Market at the corner of Fletcher & Dale Mabry in Tampa. If you have questions or would like to donate or volunteer, they can be reached at 800-906-1726.
Here was the piece I mentioned that aired this morning if you didn’t catch it.
