Mayors' Feed the Hungry Program

Mayors' Feed the Hungry Program Since its meager beginnings in 1987, the Mayor’s Feed the Hungry Program has collected and distributed over 600 tons of food and over $3,600,000 in food gift cards given to the hungry in Sarasota and Manatee counties

The Mayors' Feed the Hungry Program was started in 1987 by the mayor of Sarasota to help provide meals during the holidays. Over the years the program has expanded to include all the mayors in Manatee and Sarasota counties as well as the county commission chairpersons. The program runs entirely on donations from generous people in our counties.
