Feeding Empty Little Tummies is dedicated to feeding Manatee County’s most needy – homeless students – one backpack at a time! F.E.L.T. foundress, Jane L. Evers, realized Manatee County had a dark secret. We are home to thousands of homeless students who go hungry every weekend.
In 2010 Jane introduced Feeding Empty Little Tummies to three Manatee County public schools. We now service 50 schools and our numbers are increasing. Jane’s vision to provide nutritious meals to homeless students is still being fulfilled by our dedicated board, volunteers, and community leaders. We are currently feeding 800 students per week! We are always looking for volunteers and business partners to come alongside us and help us feed these students.
