In partnership with Feeding Tampa Bay, People Helping People in Hernando County, located at 1396 Kass Circle, Spring Hill, offers a free monthly mobile food distribution to serve people in need throughout Hernando. PHP is an interfaith community established to provide food, clothing, and other basic necessities to needy individuals. This month, they’re offering a special holiday gift for these citizens. “I want everyone to know (and share) that our Mobile Food Distribution is the fourth Wednesday this month on December 22,” said Becky Burton, Executive Director of People Helping People in Hernando County, Inc. 

Generally on the last Wednesday of the month, this food distribution was rescheduled to align with the holidays. This food distribution is conducted in conjunction with Feeding Tampa Bay, part of the national Feeding America network that focuses on providing food to nearly 1 million food insecure families in the 10-county area of West Central Florida, was rescheduled to align with the holidays.

“We wanted to help provide for people’s holiday feasts,” Burton explained. Those in need of food who live in Hernando County can come to the drive-thru event to pick up produce, bread (sometimes meat and dairy) free of charge. Distribution begins at 10:30 am and ends when food runs out; cars are directed to line up along Kass Circle, facing East. For more information, call 352-686-4466 or write [email protected]

“We started in January and it’s grown quite a bit since then. I think people are truly grateful for the items we give out. For the most part, the produce from Feeding Tampa Bay is excellent and it’s great to help those who need help obtain healthy food,” said Burton.
