Food relief offered to the community at Jordan Park Apartments

ST. PETERSBURG – Millions of families have been affected by Hurricane Irma and the St. Petersburg Housing Authority (SPHA) employees worked tirelessly and will continue to stand ready to help those still in need.

In addition to housing, food has been near the top of the list of needs for many families. The City of St. Petersburg, St. Petersburg Police Department, Feeding Tampa Bay, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Coca‐Cola and community volunteers all came together to feed residents living in Jordan Park Apartments last month.

Individuals affected received nonperishable food items for free from Feeding Tampa Bay, who reports that more than 700,000 people are food insecure in the Tampa Bay area.

“The housing authority is thankful for having volunteers from the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, City of St. Petersburg, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Organization, Coca-Cola and volunteers that assisted in the delivery of food to the community,” said SPHA Chief Executive Officer Tony Love. “Providing food to the community helped families who have limited resources on a daily basis and will allow their family’s budget to be increased after facing unexpected costs due to the hurricane Irma.”

For more information on getting help after the storm, visit disasterassistance.gov, or call 800‐621‐3362 (FEMA). The toll‐free line is open 7‐10 p.m. daily.
