Beth Houghton is executive director of the St. Petersburg Free Clinic, which helps more than 100,000 people with food, shelter and health care each year.
Houghton discusses the prevalence of hunger in our community in this 100-second video: One in seven adults in Pinellas County isn’t sure where his next meal will come from.
The Free Clinic expects to provide 3.5 million pounds of food to those in need this year, yet another 3 to 4 million pounds of food is needed to close the gap. It will expand capacity with a new food warehouse next year.
