The Patch, HEP & Dunedin Cares Team Up to Feed those in Need this Holiday Season
From now through December 31, Nature’s Food Patch Market & Café in both Clearwater and Downtown Dunedin will be collecting healthy foods to donate to families in need. Customers simply grab and purchase a prepackaged $10 bag of natural and healthy food. All donations from their Clearwater store will go to the Homeless Empowerment Program (HEP) and all donations from their Dunedin location will go to Dunedin Cares Food Pantry.
Items donated are foods that the charities are in the most need of during the holiday season, including canned goods, pastas and holiday foods. Last year, The Patch and its customers collected over $12,000 worth of food for the two charities. The Patch will also be giving all donations collected from their Ban the Bag program during November and December to these two charities.
The Homeless Empowerment Program (HEP) is a nonprofit organization recognized as one of the largest and most comprehensive homeless shelters in Tampa Bay. Dunedin Cares, Inc. formed its nonprofit Food Pantry in 2015 to address the "food insecure" pockets in Dunedin.
