Food, water offered to Hillsborough residents affected by Irma

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Hillsborough County is giving a helping hand to those impacted by Hurricane Irma. The county has set up three drive-up points of distribution (PODs) where residents can receive water, nonperishable food and “shelf-stable” meals that can be made quickly.

The PODs will be open from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday and from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday at the following locations:

  • Al Lopez Park, 4810 N. Himes Ave. in Tampa\
  • Church of God Wimauma Convention Center, 5408 State Road 674 in Wimauma
  • University of South Florida Lot 18 T, intersection of USF Sycamore Dr. and USF Elm Dr.

If you’re picking up these items in a vehicle, you must stay in the vehicle. Cars will line up single-file to enter the location. Drivers will be asked to “pop the trunk” and workers will load the items into the vehicle and guide you to the exit.
