Nativity Outreach

Food Pantry & Food Bank

The mission of Nativity Outreach is to combat hunger in the Brandon/Valrico area through the weekly distribution at Nativity Catholic Church and in Hillsborough County through other non-profits, churches and ministries.

The Food Bank supplements a satellite system of small food pantries and street ministries that radiate from Nativity, miles into Hillsborough county, enabling the hungry to be served with dignity, in their neighborhoods through a program sensitive to their needs.

Nativity Food Pantry

Nativity Food Pantry serves families in the Brandon/Valrico area. Guests are assisted weekly for three months. Food is distributed every Thursday between 3PM and 4PM. Individuals living outside the service area are given food and referred to other pantries served through our Food Bank.

Nativity Food Bank

Nativity Food Bank supplements 47 small food pantries and street ministries on a weekly basis and 14 others occasionally. These organizations are registered to determine need and tax-exempt status. Also, 93,368 pounds of pet food was distributed to a local pet charity in the area.
