How is the food used?
Feeding America Tampa Bay is partnered with over 600 charities and churches that distribute this food to the hungry in West Central Florida through their pantry and soup kitchen programs. Through this network of partner agencies, our food bank dispenses the equivalent of over 250,000 meals for the hungry each week. Since we began in 1982, the food bank has distributed over 150 million pounds of food.
Hallucination Recordings, with your help, has raised over a thousand to two thousand pounds of food at each Hallucination before Christmas Party each year.

You will be charged more for entry to the party.
Who is required to bring items for the food drive?
Everyone! We ask that even the talent (artists and djs), the staff at the club as well as party-goers ALL do their part.
