Food insecurity has been a nationwide problem, and for those in Southwest Florida, the problem only got worse because of Hurricane Ian.

The Chief Programs Officer at Feeding Tampa Bay, Matt Spence, joined Gayle Guyardo, the host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show, Bloom, to share how Feeding Tampa Bay prepared and responded to the hunger crisis post-Hurricane Ian.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at 2pm on WFLA News Channel 8.

Bloom also airs in 40 markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.
