Hashtag Lunch Tampa Bay

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Make a sandwich. Design a lunchbag. Write a note of encouragement to someone who needs a boost.

And maybe drink a free beer, too.

That is what the people at Hashtag Lunchbag Tampa Bay want you to do this this Sunday at 3 Daughters Brewing in St. Petersburg.

The monthly meetup is part of a national movement. Volunteers show up, pack hundreds of colorful bag lunches, and then deliver the food to homeless at nearby parks.

Afterwards, they return to the brewery for a complimentary adult beverage.

The Kickball Society of Tampa Bay sponsors the event and will provide food for the lunches.

“We’re sharing that common goal of wanting to give back, make a difference and show people they’re not forgotten about,” says the group’s Ariana Siller.

The event starts at 11 a.m.
