Operation Nourish is in full swing come volunteer along side other volunteers and fellow platoon members to distribute food to the Tampa Bay Community. Although we are months into the pandemic food insecurity has spiked as the summer months have presented a new challenge with getting more food to more families that need it. We hope that you will join us in filling a need that is sweeping across the nation.
