Faith & Feeding with Jeff Darrey

Faith & Feeding with Jeff Darrey

October 11, 2020

Some people find a mission in life, and rather than waiting until everything falls into place, they start placing everything that's needed on their own. For years our guest and dear friend, Jeff Darrey, has been feeding a hot, healthy meal to people in our community without a single question as to why they might need it. And not long ago, his restaurant, Trinity Cafe, merged with Feeding Tampa Bay to combine our efforts and help our neighbors in ways we never before dreamed possible.

 

And stay tuned for WTFB to hear about the future of fresh meal delivery, being cooked up by our own innovative staff and partners!
