Cook’s hat food pantry supplies food for families, children and veterans. We are located in Seminole Heights on the corner of Hillsborough Ave and Nebraska Ave in Tampa Florida. As a Christian food pantry we minister to the physical and spiritual needs of the community. All in need are welcome.

Our food pantry provides families with a few days emergency supply of food based on the size of their household. While their food is being assembled, helpers/volunteers interact one-to-one with the guest and share the gospel with those willing as well as intercede for them on behalf of their needs.
