Who We Are
Feed-A-Bull is a campus food pantry created through a partnership with Feeding Tampa Bay and is available to students enrolled at the University of South Florida Tampa campus. It was created to address food insecurities by providing supplemental food to students in need, as well as education and resources to students related to purchasing and preparing balanced meals on a budget. Over the past year during the COVID-19 pandemic, many of our students had jobs that were suspended due to closures or limited hours of operation and therefore experienced loss of income. To assist those unable to afford groceries and other personal necessities, the pantry ramped up operations to serve the increased need of our students. To date, Feed-A-Bull has distributed over 50,000 pounds of food to students in need.
What We Do
Feed-A-Bull strives to alleviate food hardship and hunger among USF students by providing supplemental food, nutrition education and resources to students in need, in order to promote student success and retention. Feed-A-Bull was created as a response to the recognition that some USF students face food insecurities, and supplemental food assistance allows students to focus on their studies. By providing emergency food assistance, Feed-A-Bull works to make sure that USF students do not have to choose between buying text books or buying groceries, and ensures that no USF student will go hungry.
Feed-A-Bull Pantry has been open despite USF's remote learning structure the past year. USF recognizes that due to COVID-19, students may have experienced reduced work income and decreased avenues for food; we have remained open to assist with tightening food budgets. We instituted updated protocols for checking in and receiving food that comply with social distancing and protect our student patrons.
