36,000 children in our community are food insecure
Out of this number, 7,000 Pinellas children are chronically hungry. This means that children have little or no access to food when they are not in school on weekends, holidays or vacations.2

Pinellas Community Foundation Childhood Hunger Relief Fund
The Pinellas Community Foundation (PCF) is committed to investing in smart solutions to overcome childhood hunger. Working in collaboration with the Juvenile Welfare Board and the Pinellas Office of the Public Defender, PCF established a fund to specifically focus on childhood hunger.
The Pinellas Community Foundation Childhood Hunger Relief Fund is now open to take donations in any amount. A PCF advisory group will determine how to best distribute the funds through a competitive grant-making process for Pinellas nonprofits that aid in the fight against childhood hunger. Donate now.
