UPDATE: The 6:30 p.m. total is $347,655. We will continue to update this throughout the day!
SARASOTA, Fla. (WWSB) - As ABC7 continues to raise money for two wonderful local causes, there is still time to give. We will continue Giving Tuesday throughout the week in order to help the community fight against hunger.
After Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday, comes #GIVINGTUESDAY, a global day of philanthropy. It’s more important than ever to support Meals on Wheels PLUS of Manatee and The Food Bank of Manatee. Giving Tuesday is a 24-hour generosity movement! Our communities are still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Ian and many people are in need and worried about where their next meal will come from.
Thanks to generous matching donations, we can continue to make a difference in our communities
ABC7 is teaming up with All Faiths Food Bank and Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee to combat hunger in our communities.
All Faiths Food Bank is the only food bank and largest hunger relief organization in Sarasota and DeSoto counties. The Food Bank was founded in 1989 by a group of individuals who, through their respective organizations, were feeding the hungry.

Meals on Wheels Plus of Manatee County is providing nutritious meals to the elderly and disabled residents of Manatee County, Meals on Wheels of Manatee, Inc. became so much more. The organization grew over the years in response to community needs, and the “PLUS” was eventually added to the name as a way of representing the many other services offered. Click here to donate.
