The official podcast of Feeding Tampa Bay. We talk food and philanthropy with some of the biggest names in Central Florida, and provide a firsthand look at the process of making sure our 700,000 neighbors are fed, happy and healthy.
Making Men of Vision with Ross Anderson
For the past 16 years Ross Anderson has been raising the young men of Tampa Bay out of difficult circumstances and into leaders, thinkers, and achievers. His Men of Vision program has guided literally thousands of children deemed "problematic" by their schools to a place where they can actively choose what kind of successful future will suit them best. Tune in to learn how he has worked such incredible magic, and how the Men of Vision have been an invaluable resource to programs like our Trinity Cafe restaurants in North and Downtown Tampa.
Our partnerships spread far and wide, and need just as much support as we do here at FTB -- so follow our social pages @FeedingTampaBay to see the names and smiling faces of the community heroes we work with every week!
For the Love of Tampa Bay with Thaddeus Bullard (AKA Titus O'Neil)
A truly great man in both character and physical stature, local wrestling celebrity Thaddeus Bullard joins us on the show to talk hometown philanthropy. Not only has he established a groundbreaking adult learning center at Sligh Middle School in Seminole Heights, but he's partnering with Feeding Tampa Bay so that our FRESHforce culinary trainees can utilize the brand new, high quality kitchen inside! Tune in to learn how he grew from a destitute child into a symbol of strength and compassion for future generations. And on WTFB we're joined by FRESHforce leader Mike Perkins, who revels in the glory of the new facility, and what it means to the hopeful candidates that join our jobs training program.
