Most people do not realize that there are many individuals living and/or working on Sanibel and Captiva who are in need of assistance. F.I.S.H. of Sanibel and Captiva, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) organization founded 37 years ago based on “neighbors helping neighbors.” The organization has now grown to the extent that many families working in the service industries, children and seniors comprise their 5,786 individual clients. F.I.S.H. helps our neighbors with food from their pantry, disaster relief (hurricane and red tide), community resource referrals, and emergency financial assistance for unexpected medical, rent, utility and other expenses. F.I.S.H. provides scholarships for children to attend summer and after school programs and now fills more than 1,000 backpacks annually with weekend food for qualified households living and/working on Sanibel and Captiva with school-age children from Pre-K through 12th grade.
