Do you know what it feels like to be HUNGRY?

The Volunteer Way and its hunger relief partners assist approximately 23,000 families every month by providing them with food and personal items. We give needy individuals hope, a hand up and a kind word when they need it most.

Mission, Vision & Values

Stuff the Bus Thanksgiving Food Drive

Help your neighbors in Pasco County have a pleasant Thanksgiving filled with food and blessings. The Volunteer Way partners with Pasco County Public Transportation every year to "Stuff the Bus" with food.

Join us November 14 between 8 a.m. and Noon at The Volunteer Way. You can drive through and drop off non-perishable food, frozen turkeys, chickens, or hams.

If you are unable to attend, you can leave the shopping to us by donating money.  

The Volunteer Way has been distributing food free of charges for over 25 years.

HUNGER has many faces:

  • Young children whose parents are unable to provide regular meals
  • Homeless or unemployed adults
  • Poverty stricken families
  • Seniors on a fixed income

99% of your donation goes to people in need.

Our administrative overhead is less than one percent, which means that $.99 of every dollar that we receive goes directly to helping the needy.
