United Food Bank of Plant City raising funds for new building

A Tampa Bay area food bank is looking to raise money for a new building to better serve the local community and meet a growing demand. The rising cost of living is taking a toll on families all over the Tampa Bay area. Jackie Santiago is a mom of three boys. “My husband and I, we both work, but things weren’t getting there. It was just, you know, we’re just barely getting by and barely making it,” said Santiago. “You could see some places you have to cut, so then you want to start cutting on food and stuff like that just to be able to pay the bills.”
