The food bank will be set up at the Tampa International Airport police training facility located at 5020 West Shore Boulvard.
TSA employees can receive food with valid identification.
The food bank will be open Monday to Saturday from Noon to 2 p.m. and from 8 to 10 p.m.
The assistance center will be open every day except Sunday from noon to 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.
