Every week, Positive Impact serves approximately 700 families in the St. Petersburg area, providing them with much-needed groceries and essential items. The lack of nearby grocery stores, combined with the high prices at those available, makes it challenging for many families to put food on the table.

Positive Impact recognizes the growing need within the community, especially as inflation continues to rise. Despite their best efforts, Positive Impact acknowledges that they require more resources and volunteers to meet the increasing demand.

We are thankful for the opportunity to expand our reach and impact our community! We ❤️ our neighbors, and ST. PETE! 🙌
