Feeding Empty Little Tummies (F.E.L.T.), founded in 2010, is Manatee County’s original backpack program to feed our homeless children on weekends, a time when these children often go hungry.
Why I chose F.E.L.T.
When I heard about Feeding Empty Little Tummies and how they send food home on the weekends to homeless children in Manatee County, I was eager to volunteer. The board members and volunteers I work with are devoted, selfless people with the biggest hearts. Every Friday, rain or shine, the volunteers of F.E.L.T arrive with a smile on their faces and determination in their hearts, ready to pack backpacks. I am so grateful and humbled to be a part of such an impactful organization.Ashley French, KW on the WaterDedicated Volunteer
