PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. — Feeding Tampa Bay and The Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority are working together to help feed thousands of Pinellas County families in need.

Their brand new "Mobile Food Pantry" program launched Tuesday morning. Feeding Tampa Bay says this will now bring food to the people, instead of them trying to find ways to get to a food pantry or store.

The Pantry is free. There's no paperwork to fill out and no requirements.

The bus will be refrigerated and you will be able to get meats, canned food, fresh fruits and vegetables.
